Session Title: GreenLight Fund— A VC for the Nonprofit Sector

What if there was an organization nimble enough to address pressing Bay Area needs and seize new opportunities as they arise? What if we could work with social entrepreneurs from across the nation and focus their efforts where they're needed the most? What if we could help low-income families thrive in cities that are rapidly evolving? This GreenLight - "the VC for the nonprofit sector." Get an inside look into venture philanthropy through the lens of a funder focusing investments locally in the SF Bay Area - hear about our localized approach, meet amazing social entrepreneurs from our current portfolio - uAspire, Genesys Works & Springboard Collaborative - and get an early glimpse of what is to come with our next investment.
