This evening, you will be heading out to Silicon Valley and to the brand new offices of RippleWorks in Redwood City. RippleWorks staffs pro-bono talent to help social good business from around the world to scale. We’ll start with Co-Founder and CEO Doug Galen and then you’ll hear from other members of the RippleWorks team.
An arena where there is huge demand but a very limited supply of talent is finding experts who have the skill and know-how to scale an organization. For those companies who have social good embedded at their core, this inability to scale can be a missed opportunity to help improve the lives of millions and millions of people around the world. But there’s a young nonprofit organization based in Silicon Valley that has taken up this challenge. It’s called Rippleworks, and it’s a great pleasure to have with us their co-founder and CEO, Doug Galen. Good evening, Doug, and welcome to The Business of Giving.
