Organised by the Social Impact Hub together with strategic partner Philanthropy Australia, and featuring a Masterclass led by former McKinsey & Company Managing Partner Rob McLean AM, Solve It, Australia! will equip you with a seven-step problem solving framework that you can use to solve all types of difficult problems, including the social and environmental ones that seem too complex and intractable to crack.
Solve It, Australia! is also proudly working in collaboration with the Paul Ramsay Foundation on an exciting funding opportunity for Masterclass attendees who are trying to solve a complex problem that aligns with the Foundation’s mission of identifying root causes of disadvantage and implementing strategic solutions to empower our community.
As part of this funding opportunity, ten organisations will be selected to participate in a two-day collaborative development workshop. At the culmination of that workshop, the ten organisations will utilise a peer-review process to determine which five organisations will share in a funding pool of $900,000 of capacity building funds. The selected organisations will receive $150,000 each and a further $150,000 will be available for shared resources and support. Additional funding may be available from the Foundation following the development period.
The Melbourne Masterclass will be held on 24 May at The Arena, NAB Docklands, 700 Bourke Street.
