Erin Huber, Executive Director and founder of Drink Local. Drink Tap., and Bonnie Dick and Ann Hunter, co-founders of the Career Transition Center, discuss challenges, successes, and key considerations when starting up a nonprofit organization.

Some of the key challenges mentioned are also discussed in our class, Grantseeking Basics. They include:
- Thinking about (and developing) credibility as a startup
- Obtaining startup funds
- Determining what type of structure the organization should take - 501(c)(3)? LLC? Something else?
- Staying on target with your organizational goals and avoiding "mission drift"
- Determining how the organization will operate - will it be all-volunteer, will someone get paid?
