RippleWorks focuses on bridging the talent gap that rapidly-growing social ventures face around the world. RippleWorks operates a short-term, high-impact volunteer program that pairs world-class experts in technology and business with social ventures.

Beyond advising or mentorship, RippleWorks is oriented towards real-problem solving: volunteer experts partner with ventures to jointly tackle an immediate and mission-critical scaling challenge, with a focus on knowledge transfer and capacity building.

Innovative, hyper-growth social ventures that have raised funding are primed to scale their business and impact, but require access to specific expertise along the way. Silicon Valley and the larger tech sector, with its wealth of expertise around scaling enterprises, is poised to help, and is empowered to do so through the RippleWorks program.
