Note: In truth we’d love to do much more to measure the impact of the ventures coming through our program. We recognize that funds raised and revenues earned does not measure what we really care about: helping people overcome their obstacles to leading fulfilling lives. But you can observe changes in the funding and revenues of a company before you can observe the changes in income levels of people in poverty or before you can observe changes in climate. We continue to work on how we can better measure our impact–in fact, we’ve hired a full time staff member to do so, and we also welcome you to get in touch with us if you have any ideas!
