Exciting News!

We are thrilled to share with you exciting news: The Social Innovation Forum (SIF) has acquired the Next Mile Project, combining our strengths and expertise to create one of the nation’s largest social change ecosystems — and solidifying Boston’s role as a hub for social innovation.

Our partnership is a strong example of how strategic nonprofit M&A can expand networks and deepen impact in a community and the acquisition validates Next Mile Project’s experiment in providing world-class professional services, a supportive and collaborative community, and educational and executive training for social entrepreneurs. By acquiring the Next Mile Project, the Social Innovation Forum (SIF) supplements its core program of accelerating social good organizations and engaging funders and supporters with Next Mile Project’s collaborative co-working assets.

The Social Innovation Forum will continue to run the Next Mile Project co-working space and looks forward to speaking with you about the exciting opportunities of our collaborative community. For more information on co-working membership, contact us at info@nextmileproject.org.
