How Social Venture Partners Impacts Tampa Bay

 

Nonprofits are tireless champions of change in communities in the U.S. and across the world. We strive to be the guidance these wonderful organizations need to make the change we need to see in the world, and the communities we live and work in. 

 

How we help...

By rolling up our sleeves and getting actively involved with each organization we partner with, learning their needs, and finding ways to support them in their journey to developing long term sustainable organizations. Social Enterprise is the future of non-profits, the need to run like a for profit business is becoming even more important these days.

What they've had to say...

What did your organization gain from the Fast Pitch & The Accelerator?

"We learned so much from the accelerator program! We are focused on ensuring our social enterprise is scalable and meets both the business case and social moral imperative for longterm sustainability."

"We have received a lot of attention from other organizations and that has helped us build relations and share our mission." - Enactus USF

"We were able to fine tune our pitch. It forced us to become MORE clear and better explain our product." UACDC

"We were highlighted on ABC action news which was a great opportunity for us to promote our work and our shop. That was very helpful." - Wellbuilt Bikes

 

If you were one of the prize money winners, how did that money impact your organization?

"It has enabled us to hire a part time coordinator! This will allow us to: hire additional artisans, streamline our inventory controls, and open up additional retail accounts. Bottom line: the prize money has given us the ability to scale the business." - Echo of Brandon

"Our prize money is being used to hire a consultant to help finalize our social enterprise business plan, towards the development of collateral materials and for client/partner outreach and advisory board meetings." - Tampa Bay Healthcare Collaborative
