"The Opportunity Collaboration is a learning, teaching and networking platform that gathers foundation executives, social investors, entrepreneurial nonprofit leaders, policy thought leaders and social entrepreneurs from around the world to focus on poverty alleviation and economic justice," they write on their website. This year, it takes place from October 13-18, that is, over World Poverty Day in Ixtapa, Mexico.
Opportunity Collaboration calls itself an un-conference. What does that mean exactly? Well, it involves a list of things "not to expect" such as "Death by PowerPoint," "Talkers, Not Doers," "Suits (swimsuits OK)," "Business Cards & Briefcases" and "Rubber CHicken Dinners." What that means is that the focus is on solving problems rather than just perhaps talking about them or rather, talking about your own business or organization.
