Social Innovators are bold visionaries. They intimately know and have lived with social and environmental challenges, and they have a firm grasp of what works and what doesn’t.

Social entrepreneurs drive social innovation via business models that can scale both impact and ROI. They possess skills not only to inspire and connect but also to build and problem solve and iterate rapidly.

We transform innovators into entrepreneurs, and dreamers into doers. We give them tools and resources to envision persistent social problems as market opportunities, design business models that support long term change, and mobilize capital to accelerate their impact.

Ventures Program

We have built the following two premiere initiatives around our Ventures program


Just as the effects of climate change transcend sectors, jurisdictions and borders, so too must effective solutions. The Obama Administration demonstrated significant leadership in this space in March, 2014, when it launched the Climate Data Initiative (CDI), aligning Administration efforts to open data on climate change risks and impacts with ambitious private and philanthropic sector commitments to mobilize data and information technology for climate change action.

The data is there; the technology is there. The markets and entrepreneurs, however, are not. An effective response to a complex global problem like climate change demands the type of systemic, multilateral collaboration among institutional leaders that the CDI fosters. But new solutions are created most measurably, effectively and sustainably when entrepreneurs are engaged as agents of change, using proven processes to drive powerful outcomes. Climate Ventures 2.0 offers a forum in which the data and technical resources of the CDI collaborators can be presented as a rich opportunity to mobilize entrepreneurial responses. Our goal is to identify and develop exemplary innovations into scalable, well funded entrepreneurial success stories.
