From Profit to Purpose, Changing the Entrepreneurial Game with for Benefit Status
Andrew is the Founder of GameChangers 500, an organization that shines the spotlight on the worldÃ¢s top For-Benefit businesses. Considered an alternative to lists like the Fortune 500, GameChangers 500 looks beyond revenue as the Ã¢point systemÃ¢ and awards organizations up to 9 badges that represent symbols of success in thisÃÂ Ã¢new gameÃ¢ of business.
His research has led him to be featured in major media such as BBC World News, Forbes and Fast Company, speak at premier venues such as TEDx and the Social Entrepreneurship World Forum, and work with both innovative new companies like Zappos.com as well as consult century old corporations like Kraft Foods.
AndrewÃ¢s progress in helping define a new Ã¢For-BenefitÃ¢ model of business earned him a seat on the Advisory Council for the Fourth Sector Mapping Initiative that is helping the US government formalize the For-Benefit legal model to become a new fourth sector of the economy, joining the existing three sectorsÃ¢for-profit, non-profit and government.
AndrewÃ¢s passion to inspire young leaders to seek careers at For-Benefit companies has him regularly collaborating with universities such as Princeton, Harvard, and the United Nations University for Peace.
After years of growing up in snowy Canada, Andrew now spends most of his time defrosting in Encinitas, California where he is leading the charge to build a regional ecosystem to support local For-Benefit businesses.
