Building Partnerships for Impact at Scale

Back to schedule

Session Description

Partnerships are critical to scaling-up social impact. Yet corporations and social innovators often struggle to establish sustainable partnerships. This workshop will focus on connecting diverse partners, aligning goals and successfully scaling-up across markets. Drawing on research at Tufts’ Fletcher School, we will focus on actual cases like that of YouthBuild, to explore how companies and NGOs can collaborate to reach common goals.
