I consider myself a social project experimenter. In the social space, I look for leveraging opportunities between and among networks (e.g. Ashoka, Young Presidents Organization/World Presidents Organization, Net Impact); financing (e.g. social investing with guarantees and grants); and operations / infrastructure. My wife and I have started Boma (Boehm Gladen Foundation and Boma Investments) to help catalyze others to action. Most projects we fund are in a proof of concept or early stage, many of which we initiate or launch with a social entrepreneur, team, or existing business. We like to dig in with our business experience and play an active role in the conceptualization and planning of new businesses and projects. We also find ourselves supporting social companies by providing working capital loans. We like leveraging great ideas that result in great solutions.
