Update: Due to the great interest in this workshop, online registrations are now closed. For those of you who missed out: the session will be recorded and published later on

On February 28, The Spindle organises a session on new ways of financing for NGOs. With the prospect of falling subsidies and donations, NGOs need to look for new sources of financial sustainability. One of these new sources might come from an organisational shift towards a more business-like setup: so-called non-profit businesses.

Melanie Rieback, member of our inspiration swarm*, has developed this concept of non-profit businesses successfully when starting her own, namely: Radically Open Security. Currently, she is expanding this idea with a non-profit startup incubator – “Nonprofit Ventures”.

During this 3-hour session, Melanie Rieback provides insight into the possibilities of non-profit businesses. She explains a step-by-step practical methodology and addresses how NGOs can realise sustainable income streams by embracing such an unconventional approach. There will be enough time for all of your questions after the presentation.

Date: Thursday, February 28
14.30 – 17.30 (with networking drinks after)
Location: at Partos – Ellermanstraat 18B, 1114 AK Amsterdam
