Message from CEO

Stephen Corliss, CEO

My name is Stephen Corliss. What have I done for the world community to make it better? Aside from treating people fairly and respectfully or making charitable donations, not nearly enough. After 26+ years leading the world's largest financial institutions I decided to leave Wall Street. Now I seek to leverage my knowledge and expertise for the broader good by bridging the gap between Wall Street and Main Street. This is why I founded Impact Catalyst.

As experts in the global financial marketplace, we understand how and why capital moves from individuals to intermediaries to investments. We know the difference between making a safe investment vs. the correct one. By bringing this know-how to the table, we reduce the friction that can stop community changing - or even world changing - projects from getting funded.

Benjamin Franklin once said "If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading, or do things worth writing about." With Ben's words as our sail, I'm launching Impact Catalyst to make a difference.

Our Goal: 10 to 1000 to 1 Billion

We are on a mission. Over the next 10 years we pledge to help 1,000 social startups impact the lives of 1,000,000,000 people. Entrepreneurs have the collective power to shape our future, so we enable them to develop the leadership, relationships, and industry intelligence to succeed. By bringing industry partners together with the world's most ambitious entrepreneurs, we will create a better future.

So join me today on our mission. Tomorrow's counting on it.
