Measuring What Matters

Social Innovation
Business Development

How can you tell If your brilliant idea to change the world is working? Impact measurement, although sometimes difficult, is vital for us to communicate to our stakeholders (customers, beneficiaries, key partners, donors, and/or investors) and confirm if the world-changing idea is doing just that. Socially purposed organizations and entrepreneurs are invited to hear about an organization’s learnings and the results of transitioning to data-driven service delivery. Attendees will gain insight into strategies and approaches to measure their impact.
