2020 was a watershed year, characterized by the pandemic, widlfires, famine, drought, war & more.
Four leaders from YPO — Alain Chetrit, Pierce Dunn, Abhijit Pawar, and Scott Mordell— saw the acute need to accelerate positive change in the world.
They created Knowledge Impact Network ™ (KIN)*, inspired by The Giving Pledge established by Warren Buffett, Melinda French Gates, and Bill Gates. The co-founders believed the world’s social entrepreneurs need contributions of sheer knowledge as much as they do monetary donations in order to crack the challenges they face trying to achieve zero hunger, knock out poverty, and among myriad other problems, save the climate. KIN unlocks human capital by activating purpose-driven leaders to offer expertise that can help social enterprises accelerate progress toward achieving their aspirational goals. By collaboratively sharing knowledge, we scale impact to create a brighter future.
