Global Entrepreneurs with a Social Conscience

“We are inspired by the promise held by this next generation of changemakers, and we thank you for investing in their potential.”
— Dave Hodgson, Managing Director, General Atlantic

Founded in 1987 by General Atlantic and named for the William Blake poem, Echoing Green has supported emerging social entrepreneurs working throughout the world with start-up funding, customized technical skills training and personal support services.  Since its inception, Echoing Green has funded more than 120 social entrepreneurs working in education reform. These innovators have launched more than 1,000 educational sites in 42 countries on six continents. We are proud to amplify the impact of these societal change agents by empowering them to create solutions which can become practical models for further success.

JLGreene is supporting twenty-five two-year fellows over a six year period beginning in 2014. These fellows hail from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, United Kingdom, United States, Liberia, Nepal, Pakistan, India, and Haiti. Their life changing projects are transforming the way people live all over the world. Technology is being used to help people with disabilities stay connected. Citizens of developing countries are being empowered to demand government accountability.  Infant deaths and illnesses are being prevented with appropriate and affordable health technologies. Access to ebooks, online math programs, and better training for teachers are improving education and revitalizing impoverished communities. JLGreene funding has nearly doubled the amount of fellow support at Echoing Green.
