Maxim Thorne: "Philanthropy Laboratory Incubator is very excited about Philanthropy in Motion -PIM. This experiential learning model achieves three goals: 1. It develops and trains a local donor community, 2. The participants actually provide seed capital and thought leadership to the organizations they study, and 3. They expand the global and local knowledge of sector and thereby potentially attract more investors and thought leaders from the local and international community to grow the philanthropic sector and civil society."
