Here at icouldbe.org, we’re having an incredibly exciting (and busy!) spring. We’ll be sharing with you over the coming weeks the various projects and partnerships in development, but right now we’re pleased to say we have been selected amongst 14 other organizations to participate in the Morgan Stanley Strategy Challenge!
Here’s how the Strategy Challenge works:
- 15 nonprofit organizations from all over the country were selected by Morgan Stanley to participate in the challenge (including icouldbe.org!). Click here to see a full list of participants.
- Now, over a period of 8 weeks, we get to sit down with a team of Morgan Stanley professionals to receive pro bono advice on growth, business strategy, and how we can fulfill our mission in more effective ways. This kind of advice and commitment is invaluable to a nonprofit!
- But it gets more exciting – at the end of eight weeks, each organization will have the opportunity to present ideas developed from the strategic meetings and compete for cash grants!
We’re incredibly thankful to Morgan Stanley for giving icouldbe.org this opportunity. Their commitment will better help us reach our goal to double the amount of students we currently serve by the year 2014!
