One clear way to drive change is to invest in leaders who have a direct connection to the communities they serve.
Forbes' Impact 30
Congrats to the thirty social entrepreneurs featured in Forbes’ Impact 30 list of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs. Echoing Green is thrilled to see six of our Fellows as well as board member Andrew Kassoy on the list of leaders in social change.
Fellows from the beginning of Echoing Green’s history, like Wendy Kopp (1991), are joined by those with over a decade of work, like JB Schramm (1997) and Sara Horowitz (1996). These visionaries lead the way for those just getting started, like Jane Chen (2008) and Josh Nesbit (2010).
Join me in celebrating the social entrepreneurs on Forbes’ list, and every innovator driving social change in the world.
Bringing about dramatic and lasting social change requires lifelong leadership and learning lessons along the way.
Entrepreneurs face unequal challenges even before getting in an investor's door. Data illustrates disparities in the social innovation sector.
