Criterion Ventures The world is already connected; we make the connections visible so individual actions have incredible impact on the critical social issues of our times.

OVERVIEW

Description

Addressing the key issues of our time –poverty, environmental threats, inequality, conflict, disease – requires that we not only work within existing markets to create change, but also that we approach social change by intentionally changing markets.

We constructed these systems. We made up the rules of finance, markets and systems. The relaxing thing? We can change them. It is vital today that we share an imagination that we can create a different market system.

With this imagination, Criterion has been leading initiatives that shape markets to create good for the past ten years – formally as Criterion Ventures. Read about our experience, our team, and what we’re up to now shaping markets for social change.
