  •  Engineering Social Innovation

    Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014

    To provide support to the “engineering journey” faced by social innovators, Santa Clara University has teamed up with ASME (the American Society of Mechanical Engineers), the Lemelson Foundation, and ANDE  (Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs). 

    Beginning with an invitation-only leadership summit at Santa Clara University in March, the "Engineering Social Innovation" project will focus on the “pioneer gap” faced by social entrepreneurs with an aim to facilitate access to the physical resources, financial resources and knowledge networks needed to maximize the scaling potential of socially-focused ventures. 

    Stay tuned for more news on this important new initiative.

  •  Congratulations John Kohler, ANDE Member of the Year!

    Monday, Oct. 7, 2013

     It takes a lot to make a grown man blush.

    Yet, the cheeks of John Kohler, Director of our Impact Capital Program, flushed red when the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) honored him as Member of the Year at their annual conference.

    John thought he was going to give a talk on his ground-breaking Demand Dividend, an innovative investment tool designed to accelerate investment in enterprises serving the world's poorest village communities.

    He simply didn’t see it coming.

    “Well, the award was a surprise! Since ANDE is such a big tent covering all aspects of impact, this is a huge honor. It is peer recognition from a community of practitioners that I care deeply about. It’s just fabulous. I couldn’t be more honored.”

    John is one of the brightest stars of the impact sector. He brings over 30 years’ experience to the Center, gained from his executive leadership at Hewlett Packard, Silicon Graphics, and Convergent Technologies/Unisys and his extensive venture experience. John provides guidance as a mentor and impact advisor to the social entrepreneurs of the GSBI Accelerator and GSBI online community. 

    Congratulations, John! We are happy to have you!
