Events and Workshops
OIE hosted two workshops to help Round 2 participants tackle the financial analysis portion of the application with confidence! These workshops were open to all members of the GW community, but focused on topics specific to the NVC's Round 2 application.
Bob Smith, Director of the iCorps Program at GW, led this overview of the Business Model Canvas (BMC) in preparation for Round 2 of the NVC. He also covered the Social Business Model derivative for those in the Social Venture track.
