Join Philanthropy MA to learn about Chario, an innovative startup that has built an online platform that connects people, organizations and information in the Massachusetts nonprofit world. It's like LinkedIn but for the nonprofit sector, where nonprofits and foundations can create a profile to showcase their work, find new funders, access cutting-edge information, and see how different people and organizations across the sector are connected.
On the Chario platform, members are able to:
See the full scale and reach of their network.
Analyze how their partners, funders, board members and stakeholders are connected.
See where they're being impactful - and where they're not.
The Chario team will present on the company's background, provide a demo for Philanthropy MA members and colleagues, and share its plan for investment consideration in Chario's expansion across Massachusetts. There will be time for Q&A with the team at the end of the presentation.
