Rethink Impact

Rethink Impact seeks to invest in entrepreneurs, tech platforms and networks that have traditionally been underinvested in and will deliver outsized financial and societal returns.    By pursuing a return-oriented strategy of social impact, Rethink Impact will support sustainable for-profit business models to spark societal transformation.  We are particularly focused on tech enablers that can harness the power of human potential through the scalability of technological deployment to create systemic change. And we believe these tech enabling businesses and teams with female leaders are underinvested in and will both deliver significant impact to society and higher than market returns for our investors.  By leveraging our 50+ years of entrepreneurial and investment experience, we select companies that engage and empower more people to do good through transformative business models for change.
