Venture Capital for Change

Since time immemorial, human beings have faced a litany of existential hurdles that individuals have struggled to overcome. The inability or unwillingness to address both the root causes and symptoms of poverty and inequality ranks among the greatest failures of societies across the world. Thankfully, a new generation of dynamic socially-conscious entrepreneurs are stepping in to fill in gaps that governments have been unable to solve.

Higher Purpose Venture Capital dives into fifty business ventures that serve the “double bottom line” of profit and purpose and are backed by venture capital funding. They have helped fuel the growth of ventures that are making a difference in the lives of more and more people every day. This collection demonstrates the kind of impact that VCs have the power to make when they choose to back founders who are solving the world’s most pressing challenges.
