Scott Stiles, 29, began learning about modern slavery while attending school at Brigham Young University – Hawaii. He decided to simply put slave traders out of business by competing with them in Hong Kong.

His thesis: both the workers caught in debt bondage and their domestic employers there are unsatisfied by the typical arrangements so why not provide competing services that both parties value? The new Fair Employment Agency was born.

The International Labour Organization estimates that 40 million people globally are subjected to some form of modern slavery, about 25 million of whom are subjected to forced labor. The other 15 million are in forced marriages.

Eva Yazhari, co-founder and CEO of Beyond Capital, a nonprofit organization that makes profitable, seed-stage investments in India and East Africa, says the nonprofit status “is vitally important for us.”

Operating as a nonprofit has allowed the organization to attract pro bono resources that made the fund operationally possible.

“If you think about a fund of our size, the economics don't work when you're taking a two and twenty,” she says referring to the standard venture fund model of charging investors a 2% management fee plus a carried interest of 20% of the profits.

The Beyond Capital fund is just $1.8 million, meaning that a 2% management fee would pay only $36,000.

Resenting the prevailing narrative about poverty in Haiti, Marc Alain Boucicault, a Fulbright Scholar, and a former economist for the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank, is putting his experience to work as a social entrepreneur, hoping to change the story and the economy.

Boucicault recently launched Haiti’s first coworking space for technology entrepreneurs in Haiti. He kicked off Banj, as he calls the new venture, with a tech conference that included representatives from Facebook and Google. He hopes to see technology infuse the traditional economy, giving more farmers and business owners access to international markets, eventually narrowing the country’s overwhelming trade deficit.

Banj already has 100 members with four of 13 available offices rented—and it’s profitable, according to Boucicault. He’s built the business with sponsorships rather than loans or equity. The members and tenants cover the infrastructure costs and the partners fund program costs.

One Key To Impact Investing: Start Big - Robert Rubinstein, TBLI - #641

Robert Rubinstein, 66, founder of the TBLI Group, has been advocating for sustainable, responsible or impact investing since the mid-1990s. One of the key lessons he’s learned: start big.

“I always focus on irresponsible investors and criminals. And I always communicated in their tribal language, so I only showed them self-interest, opportunity and money flows,” Rubinstein jokes enthusiastically, referring to the investors who didn’t already employ some form of responsible investing.

Those money flows were key. He says others in the space have made the mistake of focusing on the “moral imperative.” Money managers face targets, he notes. If they don’t meet their benchmarks they get fired. The only way to get through to them is to speak their language and to focus on financial returns.

How This Father Raised $15k For Children’s Cancer - Scott Uhland via Caringcrowd - #639

Scott and Angela Uhland were as sad and afraid as any parents when their three-year-old Lucia was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Two years of treatment left her healthy and starting school with her peers.

Scott always hoped to find a way to give back to the team of people who treated Lucia. He was especially fond of the caring people who structured fun experiences for her in the hospital during treatment. It made the whole experience tolerable. So tolerable, in fact, that her memories of the hospital include many positives, including, he admits, some of her favorite foods.

When Scott learned about Johnson & Johnson’s CaringCrowd global health crowdfunding platform, he realized he’d found the way he could give back. Scott is a PhD scientist at J&J. He decided to raise money for the Bass Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases at the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, specifically targeting their programs supporting fun for cancer patients.

Learn How to Build a Better Board For Your Nonprofit - Kate Hayes, Echoing Green - #638

Kate Hayes joined Echoing Green with a clean mission in mind: help nonprofits build better boards. Too many boards are untrained, lack diversity and aren’t fully engaged. She’s developed programs to help nonprofits and board candidates alike to be more effective.

What is the problem you solve and how do you solve it?

Nonprofit boards are ineffective - members do not reflect the communities they serve, they are not active enough in fundraising, and they are not focused on strategy. Only 16% of board members are under the age of 40; 80% of board members have received no training; and 65% of board members don't think their fellow board members are engaged. At the same time, very few training programs exist, so we are stuck in the cycle of bad boards.
