einhorn is one of the first social ventures originating from the Entrepreneur’s Pledge.
The Entrepreneur‘s Pledge is a commitment by sustainable thinking entrepreneurs
to dedicate their entrepreneurial gift to found at least one business that will reduce environmental and social harm to a minimum and invest at least 50% of the profits into a social or environmental cause.
Because entrepreneurs have the power to change the unsustainable development of the economy by applying their entrepreneurial gift.
The current economic development with its dominant outdated goal to optimize shareholder value has led to an unsatisfactory and unsustainable situation, which needs to be changed.
Call upon the Entrepreneur’s responsibility to create companies & products which optimize all stakeholders’ values as a proof-of-concept for the whole economy.
Relation to the Giving Pledge
The Giving Pledge is a wonderful initiative by the world’s wealthiest individuals to dedicate the majority of their wealth to philanthropy. However we believe that Entrepreneurs are the best executors by nature to achieve the best Impact-ROI. Combining both pledges will result in the best possible outcome for the world.
All individuals with a sufficient entrepreneurial track record willing to make the world a better place.
