MATCHING EXPERTISE WITH PURPOSE
TO DRIVE THE PACE OF IMPACT
We pair top business and technology experts with innovative, rapidly growing social ventures around the world. Beyond advising, RippleWorks is real problem solving: volunteer experts work with ventures to jointly solve an immediate and critical scaling challenge.
WE TAKE CARE OF THE DETAILS SO
YOU CAN TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS
RippleWorks offers a well-defined and high-impact program. Our simple four-stage process guides both expert and venture from application through project success. Our team ensures an immersive experience in which an expert's time and contributions are maximized for impact.
Both experts and ventures must apply to the RippleWorks program.
For experts, we look for those who have demonstrated substantial success in their field of expertise as well as soft skills that will ensure a productive collaboration in a new environment.
For ventures, we look for venture-backed start-ups with significant market traction and a commitment to a social purpose.
Once selected to the program, we pair expert and venture based on the venture's most pressing scaling challenges and the expert's domain expertise.
Projects are jointly defined by both expert and venture, and structured with specific goals and milestones.
We quickly zero in on and define the imminent and mission-critical challenges facing ventures.
We design and optimize the entire experience to be efficient and easy for both ventures and experts; from getting started to offering best practices to drive a successful project, to arranging and paying for any travel.
We bring a results-orientated approach to every engagement.
Each project's success will be measured against the milestones that were agreed upon at the beginning of the engagement.
A successful project will be one where you see your ideas and solutions being implemented and the venture scale.
