Collectively, we have over 40 years of experience working in the nonprofit sector. During that time, our consultants have been fortunate to establish longstanding relationships with so many of the best and brightest leaders working in organizations all over the country. They’re at nonprofits, philanthropies, universities, government agencies, and coalitions of all shapes and sizes. Their areas of focus are in youth development, mental health, environment, public health, and community development, just to name a few.

We thank all of these leaders for their kind words of support for our practice, and for their common desire to diversify revenue, expand impact, and build a lasting future through entrepreneurship, innovation, and business strategy.
