ChangeMaker Chat – Joshua Ross – Venture Philanthropy and money for good

What would it take for the goodies of the world to have a growing, exponential set of resources to finance how we make change? Josh Ross explores the idea of venture philanthropy and his not-for-profit ticketing organisation Humanitix. His company is disrupting event ticketing while also raising an exponential sum for charitable causes. Seed funding created a different kind of charity, where the business model raises more money than donations ever could. We talk about how he got started, what this means for philanthropy and the role of technology in social change.
