Upcoming Events

Funding Social Change, Carrie Rich, the Global Good Fund - September 26th, 8.30-9.30am (STORYTELLING)

At 26 years old, Carrie Rich raised two million dollars in two weeks to start the Global Good Fund (GGF), with the belief that investing in young leaders is the most effective vehicle for addressing society’s most complex social challenges. Four years later, GGF is a thriving leadership development enterprise built by and for social entrepreneurs that identifies high-potential leaders and accelerates their success. Carrie will share her personal story of entrepreneurship – including the highs and the lows – and discuss the barriers she sees for women seeking investment.
