Regents Bank Co-Sponsors San Diego Social Venture Partners “Advance! San Diego 2012″ Competition”
Posted by Admin
Regents Bank recently co-sponsored the San Diego Social Venture Partners (SDSVP) “Advance San Diego 2012” event. According to the SDSVP website, “Advance! San Diego provides non-profit organizations with the opportunity to hone their presentation skills, promote their impact to a large audience of funders and peers, and receive immediate cash awards as well as ongoing business consultation for our Partners.”
Elizabeth Schott is the Executive Director of Accion, which was one of 10 non-profit finalists selected. Elizabeth said, “Participating in Advance! San Diego was a wonderful experience. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pitch our organization’s social impact to more than 300 attendees at the sold-out event. We definitely received high-quality training, and it was inspiring to share with the other nonprofits in San Diego.” Accion placed third out of ten finalists, which were selected from 85 initial applications. Regents Bank Senior Vice President Stephen Friedman served as a mentor to Accion and assisted with the composition of their presentation.
This was the inaugural event of “Advance San Diego” and it is hoped that the competition and opportunity for financial support and recognition for San Diego non-profits will become a San Diego tradition.
“Nonprofit groups create a strong ripple effect in the San Diego economy; they influence everything from the arts, to education, transportation and policy,” Mark Cafferty, president and CEO of San Diego Regional Economic Development Corp. said in a statement. “Partnering with SDSVP not only provides these organizations with the tools and knowledge to succeed, but more importantly, enables these nonprofits to continue to positively influence quality of life throughout the entire region.”
Regents Bank is proud to have supported this event and many other events throughout the year which support the San Diego and Vancouver, WA business communities. For more information on Regents Bank visit our website at www.regentsbank.com.
