Greenlights and Innovation+ Merge!

In interesting news for the nonprofit industry in Central Texas, Greenlights and Innovation+ have merged. Greenlights, Central Texas’ leading nonprofit consulting, training and research organization, and Innovation+, the Austin member of the international Social Venture Partners (SVP) network, announced today that they have completed a definitive agreement to merge. The merger creates a leading organization supporting and strengthening our nonprofit, social venture, and philanthropic communities, focused on bringing solutions to Central Texas’ biggest social problems. Innovation+ will be formally integrated as a program of Greenlights, and the merged organization will remain the Central Texas member of SVP.

“We look forward to leveraging the vision and expertise of Innovation+ to enhance Greenlights’ commitment to strengthening Central Texas through the power of nonprofits,” says Matt Kouri, President and Executive Director of Greenlights, “Together with Innovation+, we have an opportunity to make a transformational impact on this community.”

I love to see one of my favorite local nonprofits orgs evolving into this area of social innovation. I hope that future accelerators in the Greenlights world include not only nonprofits, but social innovation or social good companies. Examples of this are, and Connect2Good.
