For local nonprofits, time for innovation is nowAmy Sample Ward and Randal Moss presented ways to nurture entrepreneurial employees and capitalize on internal innovations
"Innovation isn't just about technology, but it is all about solving a problem." Those words were one of many tweets expressing the theme of last week's 12th annual Securing The Future nonprofit conference. The event, held at Xavier's Cintas Center was sponsored by the Chamber and focused on exposing nonprofit groups to ways to innovate using technology.
Nearly 200 attendees had the opportunity to network, talk to vendors, and hear from two keynote speakers: Randal Moss, author of "The Future of Nonprofits" and Amy Sample Ward, Membership Director of Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN). Both presented ways to nurture entrepreneurial employees and capitalize on internal innovations. "Innovation is a team sport. If you don't embrace it, you won't get there," Moss said at the event.
During the conference, those in attendance were encouraged to tweet observations, ideas and questions to #cincystf.
