Groundup ConneXion is a series of workshops that take place on a quarterly basis, designed to build the capabilities of groundup founders and core volunteers. We invite experts within our community to share their knowledge, and what's great about the whole experience is that you get to learn and grow whilst meeting like-minded individuals and fellow groundup leaders!
Hosted by NVPC's Groundup Central team and Pro Bono SG, join us for the upcoming ConneXion workshop If you are grappling with fundraising, unsure of whether it’s permitted, want to learn about how to ensure you’re abiding by the guidelines, and the “do’s and don’ts” as a Groundup.
Let's celebrate the end of 2023 together! Co-hosted by Groundup Central and OpenJio, join us for a reflective year-end celebration together at Groundup ConneXion: End-of-Year Social!
