How Does it Work?

The structure of the event will be similar to speed dating. The nonprofits and BVN members will both be given a set of conversation points to cover, but please feel free to move your conversations off script. Each BVN member will be randomly matched with at least one or more nonprofit organizations, based on the number of BVN members some groups may have multiple nonprofits in their group.

Each BVN member/nonprofit group will have 5-7 minutes to connect, and at the end of each session, we will move BVN members to their next nonprofit group. Sessions will be held in breakout rooms via Zoom.
