Collaborations to Advance the Impact Economy

As a cornerstone, field-building organization in the impact space, Impact Entrepreneur regularly collaborates with other leading organizations and institutions to help build the impact economy. These initiatives often take the form of sector research, leadership summits, and published reports. Below is one example of our work in this area.

Impact Entrepreneur partnered with Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors on a year-long project focused on the role of philanthropists and philanthropic institutions in building an impact economy. The project included an international leadership summit held at Impact Entrepreneur’s homebase in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, followed by two published reports, including a Call to Action to the Philanthropy Sector, which received wide distribution and was complimented by an Impact Entrepreneur-hosted webinar with a global audience that featured several of the key participants in the project. The Call to Action challenges philanthropic organizations “to use their capital in a way that more directly supports the development of an impact economy; and to align their investments and actions overall with the underlying values inherent in an impact economy.”
