By joining our platform, you can access our global network of "Experteers" from around the world with the know-how and connections to help you solve problems, seize new opportunities, and accelerate your impact.
Experteering is a term we coined to describe professionals volunteering their skills and expertise, a combination of the words Expertise + Volunteering.
While MovingWorlds does not charge a fee to you, we do ask that you:
Once your oranization is accepted onto the MovingWorlds platform, you can request any/all of the following support options:
Get expert support over a longer period of time on a specific project with a clear deliverable, like designing a new website, setting up an accounting system, or developing a marketing strategy. This is a more in-depth project and usually involves full- or part-time support over at least 1 week. See sample project here.
Need to upskill your team on a specific skill or resource? You can request an expert to come lead a training or facilitation session for any number of employees on your team. Most training sessions are 2-8 hours spread over 1-4 days. See sample project here.
Sometimes, you just need to talk to someone with experience at a specific company, in a certain industry, and/or with a specific skill set. You can request an expert advice call to talk to a subject matter expert. Calls are typically 30-60 minutes. See sample project here.
Looking for someone to support your growth as an individual leader? Request a coach to help you think through ways to grow as a leader and improve your social enterprise. This is usually done with a 30-60min call per month and email exchanges, over 3-6 months. See sample project here.
Having a mentor to turn to can be invaluable as you continue to grow your enterprise. Request a mentor to help you think through ways to grow and mature your social enterprise. This is usually done with a 30-60 min call per month, over 3-6 months. See sample project here.
Working with an Experteer helped us develop new ideas and strengthen our value chain management, fundraising and personal planning skills. It is an experience we would definitely recommend, and we plan on working with more MovingWorlds Experteers.
Our proven methodology to ensure that skilled volunteers land with impact has been featured in the Stanford Social Innovation Review, and we measure and report on key indicators of long-term impact for our Experteers, organizations, corporate partners, and other capacity-building partners (like impact investors).
According to the organizations we've supported:
See how working with Experteers helped social enterprise Coomacovalle sacle its innovative hybrid value chain across Colombia.
