The Opportunity Collaboration is a global network of leaders dedicated to building sustainable solutions to poverty and injustice. We convene two 4-day collaborative summits, one in the United States and one in Mexico. Both are all-inclusive and uniquely designed to help you forge alliances and advance your organization’s social impact initiatives.
The entire purpose of the Opportunity Collaboration is to connect you with new people and new ideas. Come prepared to share best practices, illuminate partnership opportunities or reveal a current passion or innovative idea. Engage your fellow Delegates with your mission.

This training is NOT about how to raise money in the Silicon Valley style where your investors will expect you to grow as fast as possible at any cost so that the company can be acquired in 5-7 years and the investors make a killing. We will not waste your time teaching you how to make yourself more appealing to this kind of investor! Why? Because in our opinion, that model is wrong for 99.9% of businesses – especially woman-owned mission-driven businesses.
This training event IS about designing a capital raising strategy customized to your unique situation, values, structure, and goals. Our approach works for companies at any stage and in any industry.
Fund and Fuel Your Dreams is a 3-day intensive event where you will get hands-on, expert training on how to raise money for your business.

This is also a place to connect with like-minded mission-driven, heart-centered women entrepreneurs in a supportive fun environment! You’ll even have an opportunity to hear from socially conscious investors who are especially interested in women-led businesses!
