Why CEOs Should Set Aside Equity for Social Impact (and their investors should support them)
Over the past few years, companies have demonstrated that they have an important and essential role to play in tackling the toughest challenges of our time. Increasingly, leveraging assets for good is proving to be not only the right thing to do, but is becoming a business imperative as expectations of corporate stakeholders evolve. With this shift, a new trend is emerging: Setting aside pre-IPO stock to sustainably and significantly fund a company’s social impact efforts. Top companies like Airbnb, Coinbase, DigitalOcean, Olo, Toast, Twilio, Unity Technologies, Uipath and more have ignited over one billion dollars in new philanthropy on their roads to IPO.
