Welcome to Opportunity Collaboration

Opportunity Collaboration is predicated on the powerful idea that out of fragmentation can come collaboration, from diversity can come unity, and from cross-fertilization can come innovation. The power of collaboration does not presume a single outcome. Rather, it draws its power from the conviction that people of good will forge their own solutions, directions and alliances and uncover new ways to combine and leverage resources.

None of us can afford to waste our time, so here are some elements you will want to know:

1 - Delegates are diversified and balanced among 400 foundation trustees, impact investors, innovative nonprofit executives, academic & corporate field leaders, and social entrepreneurs. Because there is no off-site housing available, space is truly limited.

2 - This working meeting on poverty reduction is unlike any other event you have attended. No plenary speeches, no panels, no powerpoints. Agenda sessions are conversations and dialogues with your peers in poverty alleviation.

3 - Global networking opportunities abound. No admonitions against touting your own passion, work, institutional priorities or partnership opportunities. Leverage resources, share innovations, enlist allies, build coalitions and create force multipliers. See ourSuccess Stories for a sampling of Delegate outcomes.
