About Echoing Green
About ECHOING GREEN:
Echoing Green unleashes next generation talent to solve the world's biggest problems. Founded in 1987 by global growth equity firm General Atlantic, Echoing Green has invested over $33 million in seed funding in nearly 600 social entrepreneurs (Echoing Green Fellows) and their innovative organizations across the globe. Recognized Echoing Green Fellows include the founders of Teach For America, City Year, One Acre Fund, The Global Fund for Children, and SKS Microfinance. Through its three Fellowship programs, Echoing Green annually supports nearly seventy social entrepreneurs to accelerate the impact of their ventures.
In addition to its Fellowship programs, Echoing Green takes an ecosystem approach to reach over a million people seeking to define their role in making the world a better place. Work on Purpose, Echoing Green’s signature program for 18-35 year olds who want to make an impact, leverages the life and work lessons of Fellows to equip these change agents to build purposeful lives and careers, while the Direct Impact program emboldens emerging business leaders to drive social change.
Echoing Green's field-building contributions include an impact investing initiative to grow investments in double- and triple-bottom line enterprises, and a bevy of thought-leadership articles and reports to strengthen the social entrepreneurship movement.
