Risk is a four-letter word for many in the social sector and the nonprofit world. Inadequate planning for risk has derailed many social impact projects and shut down creative initiatives set up to move nonprofits forward. How can the social sector keep impact on track in an unpredictable world? Fast and flexible funding can certainly help.
My guest today is Caroline Bressan, Director of Social Investments for Open Road Alliance. Open Road Alliance is a philanthropic initiative and offers fast funding to nonprofits and social enterprises facing unexpected roadblocks. It made its first grant in 2012 and now offers loans as well.
