Changing the World for Good
On May 22-24, leaders from organizations globally gathered at the SMU+GSV Mission Summit in Dallas to discuss how leading for-profit companies can have the heart of a non-profit.
Global leaders from across investment, government, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy communities gathered to shape the future of business.
“As a founder, the goal from day one was to build a successful organization that helped with security, but also to build a company that would make a difference in the community,” said Grant Elliott, CEO, and Chairman, Ostendio. “Becoming a Mission Corporation has helped to structure and streamline our goals of being a company with a purpose, and a company all employees can be proud of.” Elliott added, “Our purpose is to reduce risk by improving security for all. By doing this, we can achieve a positive return for our shareholders and contribute positively to society as a whole.”
At the summit, Elliott joined a panel hosted by co-author of the Mission Corporation, Michael C. Carter. He was joined by fellow panelists Taylor Shead the Founder and CEO of Stemuli, Ryan Evans the CEO of Bedrock Learning, and Denise M. Galluci the CEO of Rise Education Group. Together, the panelists discussed what it means to be a Mission Corporation company and how it benefits their brands, employees, and customers.
