Scaling teams need scaling leaders.

Supporting the growth of social venture leaders is one of the most important investments we can make. That’s why we created Rippleworks Leaders Studio, a series of expert-led learning programs designed specifically for social ventures.

Rippleworks partners with leading industry executives to run interactive, results-driven learning programs where social venture leaders build critical skills so ventures can deliver impact at scale.

We focus on the most critical skills leaders need for scaling teams, informed by direct input from the hundreds of leaders we support

Social venture leaders gain frameworks and actionable best practices as they learn directly from experienced industry executives

Participants are prepared to bring learnings to life through interactive sessions and post-workshop resources

Leaders learn in community, with support and feedback from social venture leaders across the globe
