About Social Venture Partners Charlotte:
This workshop is being facilitated by Social Venture Partners Charlotte (SVP), a local nonprofit venture philanthropy organization that has invested over $1.5 Million and thousands of skills-based volunteer hours in innovative local nonprofits attacking social and economic inequality in Charlotte.
SVP Charlotte strengthens nonprofits through capacity building and financial investment.
Leading the workshop will be SVP’s Executive Director, Kristin Beck, and two SVP Partners, Scott Brennan and Cristy Travaglino, who bring their own experience as nonprofit board members.
Kristin Winkle Beck joined Social Venture Partners Charlotte as the Executive Director in October 2019 as an enthusiastic coach, optimistic problem solver, and servant leader. With over two decades of corporate experience leading business units and strategic vendor relationships, she leverages her expertise to maximize community impact, collaborate with strategic partners, and optimize organizational effectiveness. Kristin intentionally stepped out of corporate America when she left her position as Senior Vice President at Bank of America Merchant Services to take a sabbatical in 2018 to recharge and refocus her career. During her sabbatical, Kristin completed two coaching certifications and founded her own coaching and consulting firm, Pivot Point Professionals, LLC. Kristin earned her bachelor's degree in Psychology and a certificate for Business Essentials in Nonprofit Leadership from Wake Forest University. Kristin is a podcast junkie, coffee addict, and networking enthusiast. Along with her husband Aaron, she enjoys cooking and hosting friends in their Charlotte home.
