Live from SXSW! Innovation in Nonprofits

By on Mar 12, 2011


Live from the floor of SXSW! (Literally, I’m sitting on the floor at the Austin Convention Center for use of a highly coveted electrical outlet.)

We all want to be innovative right? Sure. It sounds and is fabulous. But you can’t just wake up and say “today our organization is going to start being innovative.” You need a culture and structure that will actually encourage innovation and creativity.

Randy Moss, co-author of The Future of Nonprofits: Innovate and Thrive in the Digital Age, gave Convio the two-minute summary of his SxSW session on innovation in nonprofits. Watch it here and forget that old warning of “don’t try this at home.” This is one YouTube video we really hope you will try at home.
