While foundation leaders often describe their desire to spur innovation and creative problem solving, foundation giving more often reflects a bit of an aversion to risk taking and a desire to fund well tested ideas. Peter Murray, president of Accelerate Change, will challenge that thinking as he urges funders to utilize rapid experimentation models that embrace risk and lead to rapid iteration of strategies. Fast failure is part of the mantra that he is encouraging funders to not only consider, but celebrate. Join us for a presentation that will jolt your thinking about what and who you fund.
