Senior Associate, MaRS Centre for Impact Investing

Like any good Millennial, I want to “save the world”—but I don’t care about causes. I care about effects. Yours, mine, for-profit, non-profit, good-guy, bad-guy. For me, the labels are all secondary to the impact. I’m interested in big, bold thinking in pursuit of smart solutions to tough problems. To date, the most exciting platform I’ve found is something called the “B Corp” movement. B Corps believe that the muscle found within healthy businesses bent towards positive impact is the most efficient, sustainable, and scalable kind of social programming we can engineer.
