Social Venture Partners (SVP) Pittsburgh held its Spring 2019 Full Circle Cohort kickoff event on Thursday, April 4 at Ascender in East Liberty. This event marked the beginning of the rigorous 14-week impact accelerator program that includes consulting, workshops, seminars, networking and a pitch event to create an action-oriented learning experience that will strengthen the five participating nonprofits impact and financial stability.
Each nonprofit is paired with a team of SVP partners to provide hands-on coaching and support through advanced social capital, new ideas, knowledge capital, skills-based human capital and private sector financial capital.
Nonprofits were selected through an application process that chose innovative and impact driven organizations focused on outcomes and open to new collaborative learning skills. Nonprofits that successfully complete the program also receive a $3,000 unrestricted award.
The Full Circle curriculum consists of three stages, each of which are further broken down into three parts providing support through preparation, workshops, and implementation review. Details of the Program Design can be found here.
“SVP Pittsburgh is really excited to welcome this next cohort for the Full Circle Impact Accelerator Program. We have a unique opportunity through this program to connect nonprofit organizations with private sector philanthropists who want to use their expertise and access to capital to support their growth towards increased impact and financial sustainability. ” -Leigh Solomon Pugliano, Full Circle Manager – SVP Pittsburgh.
