Representatives from 4 indicators projects that have slightly different models of organization will discuss the business strategies they have used to sustain themselves. Panelists will briefly describe how they operate – e.g., their size, whether freestanding or part of a larger organization, their governance, their current sources of revenue, and key features of their history.

Panelists will address strategies their projects have taken to maintain strong relationships with stakeholders or to ensure adequate funding or generate revenue, how to sustain visible impacts in their communities, how to stay nimble and responsive over time.
