ACTION PLATFORMS DEFINED
Letter from our Vice Chairwoman
Like you, I understand and appreciate the necessity for and value of innovation, but League of Change does not start new programs or back new ideas.
We believe the answers to many of the world’s greatest problems have already been discovered.
As a measure of our commitment to that principle, our founders set forth a focused agenda to
- Find what’s already working and
2. Inject the power of the private sector – its social, intellectual and financial capital – to fast-track growth and impact.
How do we measure success? While we consider ourselves investors in improving the state of the world, we don’t talk in terms of equity stakes, exit strategies and the millions we will make. Instead, we focus exclusively on the MILLIONS OF LIVES that can be SAVED and IMPROVED.
How do we set our strategy? We have adopted the Sustainable Development Goals as the framework to guide our priorities and gauge the progress of our action platforms.
Our unique business model takes ‘actionable philanthropy’ and work at the intersection of purpose + profit to a whole new level.
On behalf of our Founders, Council of Changemakers and Partners, I invite you to join us in this important and meaningful work.
One person can make a difference, but together we can rock the world.
The Genie Project is a first-of-a-kind accelerator that uses the social and intellectual capital of the private sector to fast-track the growth of for-profit, mission-driven ventures. Venture CEOs make 3 wishes (things like coaching, connections, and consulting) to the League of Change Community that, if granted will help their businesses scale faster. More info
