We’re all in this together, right?
With that in mind, we try to keep up on what is going on out in the world of philanthropy, non-profits, healthcare, tech, development, startups...the list goes on!
There's so much to be learned from these different communities and the organizations, thinkers, and doers that are part of them. Reading about the work going on in these spaces fortifies and expands our perspective. It prompts us to have more thoughtful conversations about the work we do.
Take a look at what we are reading this week:
- We certainly believe that learning between for-profit and non-profit startups can be bidirectional. After three years of backing non-profits, Y Combinator reflects on what non-profits can learn from for-profit startups.
- There’s been a lot of speculation around how Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan should give away their $45 billion. This piece ties in suggestions with broader trends in the philanthropic space.
- This recent piece that came out in the Lancet encourages us to rethink maternal and child health, and suggests that we broaden our focus.
- Here, Huffington Post Impact takes a look at how successful social enterprises, including our friends at NanoHealth, use behavioral design to tackle health-related challenges.
- This series from Next Billion and Lean Research takes a look at the research process itself and started asking questions, including: What if research participants enjoyed the experience and found it valuable?
