Mitchell from JustChange.ca: We fund high impact and high risk projects - it's the outcome that really matters
Mitchell Kutney is a co-founder of the Canadian organisation JustChange which was started by a group of individuals who pool their own money and support community projects to solve environmental, social or economic inequality issues.
Since 2013 they have already funded nine initiatives, some of them project-based, such as a prototype or an event, while others are idea-based or in the early startup phase.
Besides JustChange Mitchell is also a member of the leadership team for the Citizen Academy (which caught my attention too and definitely is 'idea worth spreading') and he writes about philantrophy and impact investing to the well-known media platforms like The Huffington Post or Blue & Green Tomorrow’s Magazine, “The Guide to Philanthropy and Giving.”
You can connect with Mitchell and JustChange via Twitter at @MKutney and @JustChangeOtt
P.S. I recommend you to learn more about JustChange decision-making process which is a unique combination of democratic vote and consensus, described by another member of JustChange board, Albert in this blog post.
