Nothing About Us Without US
We are building a global multi-ethnic community & resource network of Social Impact Investors & Entrepreneurs focused on lasting change solutions that meet the basic needs of the world’s most marginalized.
We believe the world of social entrepreneurship, venture capital, and philanthropy though more progressive than traditional systems, is however not so different in its lack of diversity. We believe in solutions led by women, People of Color, and LGBTQ founders. We believe social impact should be as core to the investment formula just as much as profit margins. We believe in helping 21st century leaders focused on lasting change solutions tackle pressing needs for the world’s most marginalized. We believe impact must first demonstrate that inclusion is more than a politically correct nicety. We believe diversity of perspectives & backgrounds at the table, has the potential to bring diverse strengths to management of funding, scalability & company structure that inspire & build more impact companies around the world. We believe “Nothing About Us Without Us” is key to building lasting change that goes to scale.
