Current impact projects

May - June 2023

Share your knowledge for social good

Take action - it's easy!

Participate as a purpose-driven leader (Knowledge Partner) in a 90 minute virtual session. Along with a small group of other pro bono Knowledge Partners, you will share your insights, skills and connections with a social venture tackling a challenge. Add value, learn about the venture, and connect with peers on a common cause of interest.

At the end of each session, each Knowledge Partner will be asked to pledge a follow-up action, such as sharing a connection, reviewing materials, or building awareness of the venture’s impact among friends and colleagues. Stay in touch with your new network. In turn, the social venture will keep you apprised of the impact of your knowledge.  

Current opportunities to engage are below. If interested, complete the form.


Mission: Making education accessible and improving employment outcomes for out-of-school youth by integrating evidence-based curriculum into mobile game applications.

Impact: SolveEducation! is currently impacting nearly 400,000 young individuals and aims to expand their reach to 5,000,000 over the next 5 years.

Need: To go beyond grants and donations to developing earned revenue, SolveEducation! wishes to design and offer their technology to employers within the hospitality industry and incorporate modules into their platform to prepare users for employment within this sector.

Catalyze Session Question: To develop revenue streams beyond philanthropy, how can we repurpose our technology to create training programs for hospitality/service industries?

Global Commons Alliance Accountability Accelerator

Mission: Strengthening the accountability architecture and supporting organizations globally working to incentivize, enable and hold corporations accountable for setting nature targets and delivering on their nature related commitments.

Impact: A new accelerator with ambitious growth plans, the Accountability Accelerator is currently impacting 1,000 people this year and seeks to reach 100,000,000 over the next 5 years.

Need: There are restrictions within climate-action foundations to allocate funds solely to nature-related projects, like those to which the Accountability Accelerator redirects funds. Therefore, they either need to compel foundations already giving funds to lift such restrictions or explore other sources of funding.

Catalyze Session Question: How can we unlock greater funding from climate-action foundations, or identify alternative funding channels?

Knowledge Partner Skills Required: Climate action funding model expertise

Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)

Mission: Providing high-quality entrepreneurship education to students from under-resourced communities around the world to promote inclusive capitalism and build the next generation of diverse entrepreneurs.  

Impact: NFTE reaches 50,000+ students annually in 30 states across the U.S. and offers programs in 26 additional countries. They have educated more than a million students through in-school, out-of-school, college, and summer camp programs, offered in person and online.

Need: NFTE seeks to establish an effective tiered-membership structure to capitalize on the range of interested partners and supporters outside of the US, while recognizing limited team capacity to vet and cultivate prospects.

Knowledge Partner Skills Required: Partnership strategies expertise


Mission: Reimagining the future of food and responding to the urgent need to provide access to fresh and nutritious food grown in sustainable and environmentally friendly ways.

Impact: Gardyn currently has a presence in every state in the U.S. and is on track to impact 60,000 people in 2023. Last year they produced north of 1 million pounds of produce, saved 12 million gallons of water, and prevented 60,000 lbs of pesticides. Over the next 5 years, they expect to impact more than half a million lives.

Need: Given the success and recognition of both the technology and science of their product, Gardyn seeks to expand to serve underprivileged communities in efforts to combat lack of access to healthy, nutritious food.

Catalyze Session Question: ​​How can we best partner with and learn from nonprofit organizations to leverage our technology and make a greater impact in food security, nutrition and/or sustainability in underprivileged communities across the US?
