The Big Think-A-Thon: You’re Invited

We’re gearing up for our second annual Big Think-A-Thon, SV2’s Spring Gathering, on Tuesday, May 2 from 6:00-9:00pm at the SV2 office. We’ll hear rapid-fire presentations from our Grantees and Impact Investees on a specific challenge they are facing and then dive into brainstorming actionable solutions together. We’ll also have plenty of time to connect with new and old friends and celebrate the recipient of the 2017 Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen Social Impact Award. RSVP today!

The Big Think-A-Thon will spotlight nine of our spectacular Grantees and Impact Investees. In 90-second presentations, Grantees & Impact Investees will share a challenge with which they’re wrestling right now. Check out this video from last year’s Big Think-A-Thon to see this in action. Then, we’ll harness the collective knowledge and talent in the room as attendees join in small group conversations with Grantees & Impact Investees to generate solutions together.

In addition to rolling up our sleeves on these challenges, we’ll also connect over hors d’oeuvres and drinks. And we’ll honor one outstanding SV2 Partner who will receive the 2017 Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen Social Impact Award for his or her contributions to SV2’s social impact and community. If you’d like to nominate a fellow Partner for the Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen Social Impact Award, email this form to Jen Ratay by Sunday, March 12.

This event will stretch your creative and problem-solving muscles, fuel your inspiration, and deepen your relationships across the SV2 community, including with Grantees & Impact Investees. Grantees & Impact Investees will walk away with actionable ideas and everyone will leave with new connections and renewed energy for making positive social impact in our Bay Area community and beyond. We hope to see you there!
