    Surviving and Thriving in the Age of Business Disruption

    Speaker: Seth Kahan, Visionary Leadership (click here for bio)

    Description: Why are Silicon Valley entrepreneurs taking aim at non-profits? It’s because they recognize opportunities for innovation provided by frictionless, renewable revenue that non-profit organizations often overlook.  Outdated governance models and, in some cases, a disregard for private sector business tactics impede growth for non-profits, making them  targets for nimble, creative disrupters who look to capture existing markets. In this presentation Seth Kahan will demonstrate how disruption-savvy non-profit leaders are using the current innovation-friendly environment to develop new ways for building on their mission to increase impact and attract new, powerful stakeholders ready to arm them for success. Mr. Kahan will share stories from his work with more than 60 non-profit leaders and his groundbreaking summits.

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Recognize the negative impact of outdated governance models on innovation
    • Identify business tactics modeled by private sector business that may be successfully applied to not for profit innovation
    • Appreciate the disruptive impact of for profit innovation on not for profit organizations
