Indigenous founders Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds are long-time members of Social Venture Network, an association of innovative, influential entrepreneurs who are using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems (

Scott and Matt will be joining fellow SVN members Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry's who will be speaking at SVN's upcoming fall conference in Philadelphia on Oct. 29th. Just before Ben & Jerry's plenary session, Lynne Twist of the Soul of Money Institute will be hosting a benefit for SVN's Bridge Project. Social Venture Network's Bridge Project is an initiative to support entrepreneurs of color, women entrepreneurs and young leaders who are transforming the way the world does business. Research has shown that these particular business people face greater barriers to growing their ventures and ultimately changing the world. Scott and Matt have donated beautiful Indigenous shawls and blankets for The Bridge Project fundraiser
