Social Velocity, led by Nell Edgington, is a management consulting firm helping nonprofits and foundation leaders become more effective and sustainable at creating social change
I launched Social Velocity in 2008 because I saw a growing number of social problems facing our country and a social change sector, traditionally the fixer of the problems our market economy creates, ill-equipped to stem this tide.
After having spent my career working in social change organizations around the country I was tired of seeing social change leaders – people who desperately want to create a better world – bending under the weight of a dysfunctional system that limits their ability to finance, advocate for, and engage people in their critical work.
I consult with nonprofit and foundation leaders who want to create positive change to a social problem. They have built programs that are working, and they want to do more. But they don’t know how to create a future strategy, how to further engage their board and funders, how to build a sustainable business model. They are experts at the program side but need help with the management side.
I do this work because I love social change leaders. You are some of the most inspiring, passionate, caring people on the planet. But you need help. You desperately need help to do more of the work we need you to do.
And I believe that this work – of building stronger, more sustainable, more effective social change organizations – doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, it can be engaging, inspiring, even energizing.
I am here as a strategic advisor, a coach, a guide. I understand the challenges you face because I have faced them myself, and I have helped other social change leaders just like you.
