Meetup Announcement:

Exciting fundraising for data projects!

Speaker:

Alexander Shermansong, CEO of Civic Consulting USA

Alexander raised and deployed $100 million pro bono in projects in Chicago and is starting similar effort in NYC:

- 80% increase in graduation:  With five pro bono partners, City Colleges of Chicago designed and launched the Reinvention plan
- 25% reduction in wait time:  County health clinics cut patients' wait time as part of system-wide transformation undertaken with 70 individuals donating $3 million in service
- 51% reduction in youth violence:  Consulting, foundation, and university partners helped design a summer program with long-term behavior improvements for youth at the highest risk of being involved in violence.

Outline:

He shared successful strategies and tactics to:

- Engage companies in pro bono work
- Raise funds
- Manage cross-company teams toward societal outcomes
- Work effectively with government and public sector leaders

Alexander also shared his insight on NYC civic hacking opportunities.  He was looking for collaboration in consulting, programming, design, and other fields.
