We operate with aninvestor mindset, but measure success in terms of greater social impact, ratherthan financial returns. Blue Meridiantakes a rigorous, strategic approach to philanthropic investing: identifying,funding and scaling the most promising strategies poised to make a nationalimpact. Ourportfolio of “investees” addresses some of the root causes of inequity and lackof opportunity—poverty, mass incarceration, foster care, unemployment, andmore. <o:p></o:p>

Webelieve in the power of scale to address intractablesocial challenges, but we also know that organizations face barriers on thepath to meeting the magnitude of the problems they seek to address. In order tocatalyze more organizations’ readiness for significant scaling, we haverecently launched The Studio @ Blue Meridian Partners, an initiative whichpromotes strategic refinement and intentional experimentation. The Studioencourages social sector leaders to think bigger and prepare for scaling byproviding flexible resources—both coaching and capital—to develop, test, andenhance their solutions. The Studio supports Blue Meridian’s mission to boostthe economic mobility of young people and families trapped in poverty and iscentral to our commitment to continuous learning.
