Corporate Initiative

Connect with European corporate social investors and advance social impact by strategically leveraging corporate resources.


The Corporate Initiative (CI) connects around 80 European Corporate Social Investors in search of the most effective ways to advance their social impact by strategically leveraging corporate resources.

We aim to build a space where CSIs have the necessary expertise, guidance, network and recognition to contribute to real long-term social change, directly through their own operations or indirectly by influencing the operations of the related company.
