We live in amazing times. We are surrounded by great breakthrough discoveries, a thriving intellectual curiosity, open and passionate conversations on bettering our world, while also being equipped with the resources necessary to advance the betterment of all individuals.
We still face challenges, however. It is staggering to observe just how much research, how many promising innovations, and how many bright entrepreneurs are sidelined by financial and organizational hurdles, while unmet needs remain. Similarly, an abundance of idling wealth sits at the center of our global economy.
We disagree with this status quo. In creating the Cavendish Impact Foundation, the non-profit member of the Cavendish network, we have tasked ourselves with creating a new conduit to deliver resources to extraordinary innovations, catalytic ideas, and visionary leaders.
Along with harnessing the talent and tools of the Cavendish community, we have begun establishing partnerships with leading philanthropic, investment, research and industry organizations, in our mission to identify the most conspicuous innovations and support them on their path to addressing the world's unmet needs.
Through impact investment, investing with the intent of generating positive social and environmental return in addition to a market rate return, we seek to disrupt the status quo and to leave our world better than we found it.
We have the ideas, talent, and the resources to deliver true impact. Let's get to work.
