There’s a Fundamental Shift Taking Place
There’s a Fundamental Shift Taking Place
An immense shift is underway across the country and around the world. We are in the midst of a revolution and the sheer scope of this phenomenon is the likes of which the world has never seen or experienced. This shift is the rise of the third sector, what we call the nonprofit world. 

Today, nonprofits are finding it harder than ever to generate revenue and monetize their purpose, and at the same time for-profits are watching their profit margins shrink and struggle with acquiring customers.

The societal challenges are massive, and both new and established for-profit businesses are facing challenges of their own.

But is there a solution?

There is, and we believe we’ve found it! 

To win in 2018, you must strike a balance between “nonprofit” and “for-profit”.
Introducing The Power Summit!
The Power Summit is unique because it brings nonprofit and for-profits together, in the same room, to network, share ideas, and discover new opportunities...

And why are we doing this?...

Because nonprofit needs profit...and profit needs nonprofit...

To put it another way, nonprofits (think nonprofit professionals, directors, board members, etc.) are great at generating attention and raising awareness for important causes, but they often fall short in MONETIZING those efforts...

For-profit companies (i.e. Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and even self-employed professionals), on the other hand, are usually great at monetization and generating profit...they just lack the systems and know-how to attract attention and build communities centered on customer loyalty around their brands...
And that’s why this event was born...

That’s why The Power Summit was created, and now you’re invited to be a part of it! .. This event is for you if:...

1. You’re looking to establish a nonprofit and looking for ways to monetize your purpose and vision…

2. You’re a nonprofit founder and/or professional looking for methods and strategies to grow your nonprofit and make a bigger impact…

3. You’re an entrepreneur looking for creative strategies to grow your business (hint: it involves working with nonprofits)…

4. You’re both a nonprofit and entrepreneur, and you need growth by partnering the nonprofit and for-profit together for mutual benefit!...

If any of these just described you… then you need to be here...
