Philosophy


Who we are…

We view ourselves as bees – social change agents who have the ability to transfer knowledge from the rich and educated to the under-represented and impoverished.

What we believe…

Pollenization is at the core of our philosophy at Gratitude Network.  Our goal as global citizens is to move from opportunity to opportunity, delivering know-how, experience…time, talent, and treasure… to those deserving social entrepreneurs who are working to change the status quo and to enable education, eradicate poverty, and improve the environment of the earth.

What we do…

We use the power of knowledge and funds to identify, support, grow and nurture exceptional teams that can make a social impact in the world. We do this through a not-for-profit Foundation (the “think tank” or bee hive), a for-profit Venture Fund and a connected network of Mentor executives and practitioners.

What we look for…

  • Growth stage companies –not-for-profit or for-profit – that are seeking to scale up a working concept
  • In the areas of Education, Children or Youth development
  • Unique & outstanding social entrepreneur(s) who have demonstrated their vision in a local or pilot project
  • Ideas and companies that can create systemic REGIONAL, NATIONAL, or GLOBAL social change
  • Innovation in the way of leadership, problem-solving, business model or product/service
