From a 19-year-old, women-dedicated venture capital fund founder to more established entrepreneurs who started the likes of Tinder and Shutterstock, Forbes Under 30 Summit continues to bring a fresh perspective to solving age-old, systemic challenges faced by the private sector.
This year, Purpose took center stage in a variety of panels and sponsorship activations, from Boxed Water to Allstate Foundation. As our company dives deeper each day into helping our clients to find, live and tell their Purpose, we’re thrilled to see an increase in both well-known companies and young founders prioritizing their own positive impact, and embedding these practices and values into the very core of their business.
“Purpose absolutely needs to be integrated into your business model,” said Shutterstock Founder Jon Oringer during the Doing Well by Doing Good panel. “For us, it’s the payout on one of our photos and bettering our photographers’ businesses.”
For those starting their own venture, this Forbes summit is increasingly providing the tips, tools and insights to building the future of business, and broadcasting these to a network of next-generation talent. And, we know from Forbes and our own 2019 Gen Z Purpose Study, this emphasis on impact is only increasing as new professionals enter the workforce – shaping each brand with their own ambition and values.
