We exist to accelerate the transition to a for-benefit economy: an economy that grows love, promotes unity, and cares for the one planet we call home.
A critical mass of thriving for-benefit businesses in every major city in the world
You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
Here’s how we help you
reinvent the world.
Accelerating best practice sharing
A New List for a New Era in Business
Lists like the Fortune 500 have implied that success in business is based on maximizing revenue. By creating GameChangers 500 we are building aspiration for a new breed of organizations—organizations that define themselves as For-Benefit rather than For-Profit, and utilize business to not only make money but to also make the world a better place. GC500 is an annual ranking of the world’s top for-benefit businesses, published by Conscious Company magazine and shared by a growing list of global media partners.
Best Practices for All
GameChangers.co ranks the world’s top for-benefit organizations and makes their best practices easily searchable, giving entrepreneurs and executives access to best-in-class methods that have been proven to create meaningful impact while maintaining a financially successful organization.
Accelerate the growth of for-benefit businesses
A two day training designed to educate and enroll organizations into the For-Benefit model of business. You’ll learn the defining characteristics established by a 180+ person research council, the 11 best practice categories that for-benefit businesses focus on, and learn best practices from famous for-benefit brands such as how they built award winning cultures, created zero-waste operations, and outpaced their for-profit peers as a result.
Local Change as a means to Global Change
Two day Training Camps are held in targeted cities with the objective of influencing a critical mass of local businesses to commit to for-benefit practices. In doing so, a regional ecosystem of support services—capital, consulting, certifications—can more easily form to accelerate the transition to a for-benefit economy, and leave a case study for other cities to follow.
Rewards & Incentives
Until federal policy is changed there are no tax incentives for businesses to choose a for-benefit model over a traditional for-profit. We’ve built GameChangers.co using gaming dynamics to boost intrinsic motivation, guide direction, and allow you to have a little more fun. Qualified member organizations are guided to follow for-benefit business practices, and awarded for sharing them. The more for-benefit your business is, the more rewards you earn. Land within the top 500 and earn a spot on the annual GC500 list, published by Conscious Company magazine and shared by dozens of global media partners.
Accelerating the construction of a for-benefit economy
Drafting the blueprint
We are synthesizing thought leadership on system change into a simple and visually beautiful blueprint to help empower people and organizations to find their role and seek collaboration. To date we have participated in and hosted convenings with the Fetzer Institute, Fourth Sector Network, Pachamama Alliance, OneProject, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Emergence Project, David Korten, Global Footprint Network, and the YK Center. The drafting is underway…
Accelerating the build
We are uniting select GameChangers to solve priority problems that help accelerate the construction of a for-benefit ecosystem. These invite-only multi-day immersions use a patented collaborative design process that has been used by organizations like NASA and Boeing to solve critical problems. Now it’s in the hands of the GameChangers!
GameChangers.co includes a growing database of organizations and experts commited to changing the game. Search to find organizations and experts to collaborate with on your Gamechanging quest.
