019, Carrie Rich, Global Good Fund | The Surprising Power of Strangers to Do Good

Every now and then, life surprises you. People, even complete strangers, have the capacity for kindness and goodness. They can sometimes surprise you in unexpected and wonderful ways. Carrie Rich had one of those experiences, and, in a smaller way, I had one of those experiences when Carrie told me her story.

Of all of the interviews that I have done, this one caught me off guard more than any other. In fact, you will hear at one point in the interview, I told Carrie, “You could push me over with a feather.”

In this episode of Social Entrepreneur, Carrie tells the story of the Global Good Fund and how it came to be, including the surprising power of strangers to do good in the world.

The Global Good Fund identifies high potential leaders of social good organizations who are positioned for growth. They provide a proprietary 360 degree assessment, a fellowship program and ongoing mentorship. They are not an incubator or an accelerator. They are for leaders of social enterprises that are about two or more years in their journey, who need help to reach the next level. They focus on developing the individual leader in order to develop their individual capacity.

The results speak for themselves. The companies they work with are going at three to ten times faster than would otherwise be expected. In this interview, Carrie shares how the Global Good Fund works, how they select their fellows, how they extend their offerings to people who cannot attend their program and where they are going next.
