How One Email Unexpectedly Turned Into $2 Million to Start the Global Good Fund
In episode 51 of the Disruptors for GOOD podcast, I speak with Carrie Rich, the Co-founder and CEO of The Global Good Fund on using capital to accelerate social impact.
Carrie Rich is the co-founder and CEO of The Global Good Fund. Built by and for social entrepreneurs, The Global Good Fund was created in 2012 based on the belief that growing leaders is the best strategy for solving complex social problems and achieving global good.
Carrie tested the theory behind the fund while working as Senior Director of Vision Translation at Inova Health System and teaching as an adjunct faculty member at Georgetown University. There, she co-authored Sustainability for Healthcare Management: A Leadership Imperative, a Handelsblatt’s Top 5 Business Book. Carrie has been recognized as a 2018 Enterprising Women of the Year Awardee.
