Bold Strategies For Accelerating Impact Summit

Highlights from the Event

At Thrive Networks' recent "Bold Strategies for Accelerating Impact" summit, held at Stanford, a full house of nonprofit and social enterprise leaders shared insights and discussed innovative strategies for creating greater impact. We share some of the best moments here.

A message from John Anner, CEO Thrive Networks:

I was truly energized by last month’s successful Bold Strategies Summit. Thrive Networks convened a full house of nonprofit and social enterprise leaders (see event photos here) who made new connections, shared insights, and discussed innovative strategies for creating greater impact. If you were unable to attend, I invite you to get in touch with me. Let’s start a conversation about building lasting social change through collaboration.

Collaboration was key to producing this content-rich, stimulating event and pulling it off without a hitch. This unique gathering was made possible by our generous sponsors: the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. Special thanks go to our host, Stanford Social Innovation Reviewand our knowledge partner, the Bridgespan Group.

Each of our speakers, panelists, and moderators deserves a round of virtual applause. They were generous with their time and ideas, and provided thought-provoking content. Special thanks go to keynote speaker Van Jones for closing on such an energetic, hopeful note.

Finally, thanks to all who attended the summit and enriched the conversation with astute questions, shared experiences, and willingness to entertain innovative ideas for creating lasting social change. I’m confident this is just the beginning of what we will accomplish together.

Yours collaboratively,
John Anner
