Members Only Webinar: Log In To View A Recording!

The rise, spread, and economic repercussions of COVID-19 take “unexpected challenge” to an unimaginable level of urgency. This pandemic underscores a truth that has always been present (if not so acutely felt) in our sector forever: the world is inherently unpredictable. Social enterprises are on the frontlines of this uncertainty with even the most promising organizations struggling to preserve their impact.  
Recognized as the “emergency room” of impact for social enterprises and nonprofits, since 2012, Open Road Alliance has has served organizations across 60+ countries, keeping $450+ million of impact on track by providing more than 270 fast and flexible grants and loans to 225 organizations facing one-time unexpected roadblocks, cash crunches, and catalytic opportunities. In this Virtual Learning Opportunity participants will:
  • Understand how investing in social enterprises during times of crisis evolves and builds the resilience of not only the individual organization, but the entire ecosystem that the social sector has worked so hard to build. 
  • Step inside the Open Road COVID-19 funding emergency room. 
  • Learn four key practices for successful emergency financing that can transform your own impact funding strategy from crisis to resilience.
  • Maya Winkelstein, CEO, Open Road Alliance
  • Caroline Bressan, Managing Director, Open Road Alliance
