The 2016 Annual report recognizes our community's generous donors and highlights our nonprofit partnerships. It also shares the stories of donors who believe that, working through the Yampa Valley Community Foundation, they have the power to make a real difference. The impact in 2016 was enormous. Made possible by 1,221 unique donor gifts, we granted in excess of $1.5 million that benefited 186 nonprofit organizations and the thousands of individuals and causes they serve. In addition, $162,000 in scholarship awards helped 90 students further their education.
However, we strive to do much more than distribute grant dollars. Through supporting and educating our donors we help them focus on their individual interests as well as maximizing their charitable giving. By growing our community endowments, we secure a permanently vital and healthy future for the Yampa Valley. By empowering our nonprofits, we strengthen their work and accomplishments.
Looking forward, we intend to broaden the Foundation's impact. Philanthropy is better as a collaborative effort; working together we can cultivate and add value to philanthropic passions and create positive, lasting change for our citizens and communities.
The Innovation and Entrepreneurship program at SIBM Pune has evolved multiple folds over the past years, training and fostering individuals to achieve their dreams. More than merely transforming students, the institute works towards empowering them to believe in themselves and their ideas through thoughtful mentoring. This edition focuses on how essential businesses in India need to focus on developing Disruptive Innovations.
The ‘Experience’ factor has been a great distinguishing element that this course has grown to inculcate over the years, as many of the students who have enrolled in the program have an entrepreneurial itch. These students want to get their hands dirty through the learning process and we, as facilitators, have realised this need, and have, over the years, tweaked the I&E program to provide just that.
The first year students undertook ‘Live Projects’, an opportunity where they got to test their business ideas on the SIU campus. Another step in the same direction was through a collaboration with ‘iKen’, a platform created to help early-stage entrepreneurs develop core skills through effectuation methodology.
At the heart of every creative and risk-averse proposition, there lies the need for capable mentoring. The second-year students of the program got an opportunity to pitch their venture
ideas to a panel of mentors through 'SYM Accelerate'. This issue also has a highly insightful interview with Mr. Vineet Rajan, an alumnus of SIBM Pune & the founder of ScoutMyTrip and an article featuring the various startups of MBA I&E students of SIBM Pune.
Transformation Nepal is a Christian Faith-based NGO started in 2008 by devoted Christian professionals with the vision to transform Nepal into what we call a Holistically Transformed and Prosperous Society. We aim to do this by bringing about the holistic change of the physical, mental, social and spiritual condition of the poor and needy in the country. Transformation Nepal is working in the three areas of Education, Livelihood and Disaster Management to bring the Good News to the poor so that they can have Fullness of Life.
2012 was an exceptionally exciting year at the Interactive Institute. It was the year when we once and for all beat the future visions from science fiction movies and revealed a 5500 year old murder mystery through visualization technology. We brought eye tracking technology to the workshop floor, and with the help of sound design we improved the working environment in an industrial facility.
Our job is to create great user experiences that involve and engage people – no matter if the challenge is to change the way museums communicate science to their visitors or to involve lead users to give companies a competitive advantage. New user experiences can be created in all types of businesses and contexts, which make imagination and the ability to think new essential to our line of work. This is why we are especially proud to present all the different cases in this annual report, each taking on a different challenge and each working with partner companies from different industries. We enable dialogue between different competencies by developing tools and processes that create transparency and mutual understanding.
Welcome to read about this and more in our Annual Report 2012.
The Collaboration Incubator is a participatory format, where you can learn about ‚social technologies‘ - mainly group facilitation processes - which integrate activism and intuition. The aim of the program is to figure out ways to support each other in what we are currently working with – as part of a movement, an organization or as individuals. Related to that, we are also using the group's creativity and intelligence to look at a bigger shared question: „How to help building momentum for global grassroots democracy?“.
With this idea in mind, we were inviting people who feel dedicated to progressive movements and/or progressive ideas around changing things from the ground up.
The report has an emphasis on the most recent incubator in Oakland, California, since a local funding from TRCC thrivingresilience.org enabled it. It builds on and integrates content, learning and experiences of the two previous Berlin incubators. It’s a years’ report.
