Andrew Hewitt – Founder, GameChangers 500

August 4, 2016 at 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

Research has found that purpose-driven companies outperformed the S&P 500 by 14:1 over a 15 year study, and with Millennials becoming increasingly focused on social causes, organizations and leaders need to be aware of the trends.

Andrew Hewitt will share his thoughts for becoming a for-benefit business, so you can take advantage the #1 trend of our decade, attract top talent, deeply engage your employees, tap into new sources of capital, and turn your customers into raving fans; all rewards for doing a whole lot of good for this planet. The goal for San Diego is 1,200 companies within 2 years.

Through his leadership in creating GameChangers 500, a ranking of the world’s top for-benefit businesses, Andrew Hewitt has become a sought-after expert on what differentiates high performing purpose-driven companies. His research has led him to be featured in major media such as BBC World News, Forbes and Fast Company, lecture at leading institutions such as the U.N. University for Peace and the Social Entrepreneurship World Forum, and work with both innovative new companies like Zappos.com as well as century old corporations.

As a member of the Fourth Sector Mapping Initiative Advisory Council, Andrew is supporting the U.S. government’s transition to a four sector economy where for-benefit corporate structures will join the traditional three sectors of for-profits, non-profits, and government organizations. When he’s not researching for-benefit companies he’s often supporting millennials in finding meaningful careers within this movement, collaborating with student leadership networks and top schools such as Princeton and Harvard.
