Achieving breakthrough impact often requires engaging stakeholders with diverse perspectives and experiences to help find the answers to complex problems and to pursue aligned action. Traditional planning and consensus building processes can take significant amounts of time and resources and often do not result in the types of relationships and shared commitments needed to create change. For nonprofits and philanthropists confronting these types of challenges, Bridgespan-led Impact Labs (both virtual and in-person) can help to jumpstart, accelerate or sustain progress. Impact Labs help leaders:
Blue Meridian Partners assembles results-oriented philanthropists to make investments in promising solutions to the problems that limit economic mobility and trap America’s young people and families in poverty. The Studio @ Blue Meridian embraces experimentation and provides flexible resources to help organizations prepare to scale. Bridgespan has been a key partner in supporting the work of The Studio @ Blue Meridian since its inception, including working with The Studio to co-design and execute a series of virtual workshops to help a set of extraordinary social sector leaders to develop and refine their approaches to achieving scale.
