While startup culture has traditionally existed primarily around technology companies, the last five years have seen growth in non-profits as startups. Well known cases including charity:water have been successful in raising venture capital-style funding and successful startup accelerators such as Y-Combinator are now funding non-profits. The days of ineffective non-profits raising traditional grant money and building endowments is quickly being replaced by new, innovative funding models for a new generation of non-profit. 

In this session we'll discuss case studies of new-age non-profits that are operating like startups. We will also have a conversation and Q&A centered around GOAT including their bootstrapped startup relying on non-traditional, young donors, their use of The Mountain Goat Indoor Rock Climbing gym as a main funding source, and their Youth Entrepreneur Program that provides new programs for the kids they serve while adding revenues in a sustainable model.
