Launching Strategic Planning

As we approach the end of the third and final year of SV2’s 2014-17 strategic plan, the Board of Directors is gearing up for its next strategic planning process to define SV2’s next stage of growth and social impact. Save the date to join us to offer your ideas and input on SV2’s future at either of two Partner and community-wide workshops – lunch on May 11 (RSVP) and dinner on May 16 (RSVP).

SV2 is pleased to be working with Open Impact who will help guide the SV2 Board of Directors through an inclusive strategic planning and business modeling process.

A Strategic Planning Steering Committee, made up of Board Members Lisa Jones, Kelly Pope, Tony Stayner, and Paru Yusuf, and led by Board Chair Bill Brownell, is leading this work, and will ultimately make a slate of recommendations to the full Board regarding SV2’s vision and goals to guide the organization for the next several years.

We can’t complete this process without your valuable input. We will solicit Partner feedback through a community survey in March and two interactive Partner workshops at SV2 in May. The first workshop will be held on Thursday, May 11 from 11:30am – 1:30pm (RSVP); the second will be held on Tuesday, May 16 from 6:30-8:30pm (RSVP). We’ll also gather feedback from SV2’s Grantees and Impact Investees over the coming months to incorporate their perspectives as we shape our plan.

If you have any ideas that you’d like to share or questions about the process, feel free to reach out to any of the Steering Committee members listed above. We look forward to diving into this work with all of you!
