About the SIFP Workshops: The purpose of these workshops are to 1) better prepare applicants for the SIFP competition and rubric for which they will be judged, and 2) to help social innovaters in Seattle better assess strengths and weaknesses, refine their business models, support their team, and articulate their innovation.
These workshops will be hands-on and interactive, and participants should expect to first go through general principles with the faciliator - including examples and descriptions of a range of organizational stages in capacity building areas - after which participants will work towards a customized approach to their own social venture.
