#1MCstp: SVP Tampa Bay, 11/8/2017

This week at 1 Million Cups, Randy Rothensal came to share an update on Social Venture Partners Tampa Bay.

Randy began his presentation by asking the audience a question. He asked them to stand up if they wanted to do something that extends beyond themselves and if they want to make our community a stronger place.

And with no surprise, the entire room stood up.

Social Venture Partners Tampa Bay is made up of volunteers, parents, community leaders, philanthropists – a global network of local partners connecting passion and purpose. SVP Tampa Bay sees the chasm between the challenges we face today as a society, and the scale at which we are engaging those challenges.

And they’re ready to cross that chasm. Together.  They believe that nothing truly great is accomplished alone. Every person in our network has something to teach and something to learn. SVP knows we have more to give, and that more needs to be done.

Most importantly, they believe it can be. Where others see insurmountable problems, they see potential.

How Can We Help?

When asked how the community can help SVP Tampa Bay, Randy invited the 1 Million Cups community to attend Fast Pitch, spread the word about Social Venture Partners and to “keep doing the great work that each and everyone of you is doing”.
