"People in a good collaboration accomplish more than the group's most talented members could achieve on their own."
- Twyla Tharp, The Collaborative Habit
At SVN, we encourage our members to work collaboratively. Many of these collaborations result in major positive social and/or environmental impact. Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE), Net Impact, Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) and the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) are all organizations that spawned through SVN member collaborations.
