For the past decade, we’ve been on the front lines of some of the biggest social impact campaigns, working with major brands including Pepsi, American Express, Foot Locker, Starbucks to train young social entrepreneurs to create projects or nonprofits of their own. Many of these young entrepreneurs went on to become the best young change makers in the country, topping the Forbes 30 under 30 list.
We saw so much potential in the fresh, new ideas that young social entrepreneurs brought to the table—they were uninhibited, they were bold, they were disruptive. But we also saw just how difficult it was for these innovative ideas to get off the ground. This experience inspired us to look at the nonprofit sector and ask, how can we help more innovative nonprofits to succeed?
At Change Better, our team has one mission—to catapult innovative nonprofits to new heights.
