Upmetrics assisted the Prep Institute in teaching nonprofits about business planning for social problem solving
CEO, The Prep Institute
To provide more communities with access to social problems, unconventional methods are needed. There were over 35 nonprofits involved in this call to action.
To strategize how to solve similar social problems occurring in multiple communities and funding strategies, they needed a business model, a plan, and a pitch instead of a grant proposal. According to them, urban, suburban, and rural communities face similar challenges.
The traditional approach of using grants, however, benefits one community at the expense of neighboring communities. In addition to lacking access to business tools for modeling social solutions, they also lacked an effective tool for presenting their solutions to public and private philanthropists.
This challenge was overcome with the help of Upmetrics- Upmetrics makes business planning for social problem solving easy for nonprofits so they can build and present roadmaps for championing the expansion of social solutions.

Creating social impact comes with a few problems
Overcoming challenges for the greater good
The Prep Institute helped nonprofits and social investors design their business models and canvases. This empowered them to define and coherently present their business ideas. But, building a business plan involves working on the intricacies. It involves meticulous planning. It even requires all stakeholders to collaborate and work as a team to brainstorm and come up with the best plan possible.
The Prep Institute understood the importance of collaboration and teamwork. So, they were actively looking to overcome the absence of an online business planning solution in their arsenal. They needed a one-stop solution for all their needs. A solution catering to their unique needs and demands.
