And now, for a personal announcement:
I’m delighted to share exciting news. Fourteen years after founding Blueprint Research + Design, I am selling the firm to Arabella Advisors.
I will become a 1/2 time Managing Director at Arabella. The rest of the Blueprint team is also joining Arabella - we effectively become the San Francisco office of a national philanthropy advising firm.
I also will expand my role at Stanford's Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society as a Visiting Scholar. At Stanford I will be jointly launching a research project on global social sector policy and trying to weasel my way into their athletic facilities.
I will independently maintain all of my writing (this blog, tumblr, twitter, slideshare, scribd, issuu, annual industry forecast, etc.) I intend to ramp up my writing quite a bit over the next several years. (Yes, I'm still working on the book) As always, my writing is my writing - my opinions and my mistakes (in other words, "don't assume anyone else necessarily shares the opinions expressed here").
Thanks for reading and I'm looking forward to continuing our many conversations.
