Huddle

A 3-Hour Strategy Session

The SEG Huddle is an intensive, customized one-time service for later-stage ventures to get feedback from a panel of SEG skilled volunteers on an opportunity or challenge they are facing in their social enterprise.

“SEG provided a team of business professionals that asked provoking questions, offered innovative ideas, and assisted us with system analysis and developing our strategic roadmap. The value of these professional level services is worth thousands of dollars in the for-profit sector, and is truly invaluable.”
– Kathleen Cloutier, Executive Director, DORCAS International
Program Details

The SEG Huddle provides high-potential, later-stage social ventures with a three-hour strategy session in collaboration with prominent industry partners and SEG’s network of community and business leaders.

Highlights of the SEG Huddle are:

  • A focused approach: Ventures provide background, context, and an opportunity or challenge they are facing to a core group of skilled consultants. Organizations leave with a plan to tackle their company’s most pressing need.
  • A curated one-time consulting team: SEG volunteers are matched carefully to the strategy question or business decision facing the social enterprise requesting a Huddle.
  • A track record of participants: Since January 2014, the SEG Huddle has provided support to RIMTA, Bike Newport, Metryx, Solar Sister, Dorcas International Institute, Jane Pickens Theater, Tinker Bristol, Doctor’s Choice, NE Distance, Beat the Streets Providence, and other successful social enterprises.
