Social Velocity, led by Nell Edgington, is a management consulting firm helping nonprofits 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 nonprofit sector, traditionally the fixer of the problems our market economy creates, ill-equipped to stem this tide.
After having spent my career working in nonprofits around the country I was tired of seeing nonprofit 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 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 nonprofit leaders. They are some of the most inspiring, passionate, caring people on the planet. But they need help. They desperately need help to do more of the work we need them to do.
And I believe that this work – of building stronger, more sustainable, more effective nonprofit organizations – doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, it is usually 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 nonprofits leaders just like you.
There is a better way. I’d like to help you find it.
