Given the caliber of leaders in the NGO, foundation, impact investing, and media space, I would highly recommend Opportunity Collaboration to colleagues. - Rui Bing Zheng, Development Manager, Fair Trade USA, Global
“The colloquium helped me really connect to my core values and the 'why' behind the work that I do, validating that I am in the right field, doing the right work. We were able to connect with other funders, share best practices, and promote our partners. Our participation helped push our thinking to a new level.”
“The people who attend Opportunity Collaboration are a true inspiration. Each year, we see ‘old friends’ but also meet many new faces. This was our third Collaboration and it has clearly been a catalyst for our own activities. More than 80% of our impact investments to date and probably the same percentage of the new contacts and friends we have made since joining the fight against global poverty two years ago have stemmed from Opportunity Collaboration. Before making the trip this year, we were thinking that we might take a rain check next year, but it’s really not an option! The whole family loves Opportunity Collaboration. It’s a great way of exposing our children to our work and to the work of others while taking great strides in progressing our own mission.”
“Opportunity Collaboration is a source for partners, both organizations, and individuals. The structure allows for cutting-edge topics, deeper engagement in new directions, and deeper insights to emerge than if you were in a Hilton ballroom. It’s a community that keeps what works, but continues to reinvent itself.”
“Opportunity Collaboration is so well organized and very different from other conferences. We get to know each other in small groups and explore our values. But above all, the environment makes such a difference, and the amount of free time to talk to many different people about each of our programs. The diversity of people is excellent.”
"Connecting with over 50 amazing people on a personal level. This will lead to partnerships and opportunities in the future."
