The revolution is happening in New York, home to the Rockefeller Foundation, who invented the term “impact investing”, along with Global Impact Investors Network (GIIN), the Ford Foundation, Robin Hood, Acumen, and Closed Loop Partners, all making the greatest city in the world a powerhouse of social good and environmental good finance.
What is missing is a stream of young, scrappy, and hungry socially and environmentally conscious entrepreneurs. Fledge NYC aims to do just that, attracting applicants from around the world, bringing them for two months at a time to the city that never sleeps, and connecting them to the organizations and people who can help them succeed.
If you are an entrepreneur seeking guidance for your mission-driven for-profit, ready for your shot, we’re here to help. If you are a business professional who would like to help, join our mentor network. If you are a philanthropist or impact investor who funds fledgling-like companies, contact us.
