Giving back

"Be the change you wish to see in the world" - Gandhi

Just as we believe in helping fellow founders to build successful businesses, so we believe that success should be shared and that businesses should give back, whenever and wherever possible.

 

This is why we have chosen to actively support and donate a percentage of our carried interest to Epic and Founders Pledge, two organisations that help businesses do just that.

Epic is a global nonprofit startup which fights to change the lives of disadvantaged youth. Epic removes obstacles to giving and focuses donations on innovative social organisations to scale their impact.

 

Epic also brings and promotes new ways to give, so sharing becomes as joy filled and as easy as possible. The services are free and 100% of the money received goes to Epic portfolio organisations.

 

Epic builds and manages a portfolio of rigorously vetted social organisations that use social innovation to address injustices affecting children and young people. Epic monitors their social impact, helps them scale and shares findings.

 

Epic helps institutions and corporations to create a purpose-driven giving culture and attract, motivate and retain staff, customers, and investors.

 

To find out more about Epic and how you can get involved, visit their website.

Founders pledge is a global community of entrepreneurs dedicated to finding and funding solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

 

They champion evidence-led and thoughtful approaches to impact.

 

By equipping their members with charity research, streamlined giving infrastructure, and an international network of experts to learn from, they are empowering them to bring their resources to the global problem solving table.

 

Operating costs are fully funded by a separate group of founders, philanthropists and institutions. So they don't charge members fees or dues. 100% of donations end up with the causes they support.

 

Membership of Founders Pledge is open to investors as well as founders. For more information on Founders Pledge and how you can involved, visit their website.
