Hotfrog — The World’s First “Global Impact” Media Company
Arab Spring. Global financial
meltdown. Climate change. Occupy protests.... Around the world we see evidence
of profound upheaval and transformation. Political. Cultural. Economic. It has
been called The Great Disruption. The Big Shift.
From the smallest villages of the
developing world to the cities of industrialized nations, a movement is
materializing as increasing numbers of people realize that human society is
following a completely unsustainable and inequitable path. We are like the main
character in the famous “boiling frog” story — stuck in a pan of heating water.
As the water grows hotter,
however, the call for deep, systemic change has grown louder and clearer.
We call it the Global Impact
Movement, and its members “hotfrogs” — the ones who know better and jump!
Hotfrog, our company, is both a symbol and an exciting new embodiment of the
movement. We are a pioneering and history-making company that has been
painstakingly developed to be and make the change we want to see in the
world. A company anchored in a single potent idea — impact.
Hotfrog = Impact = Transformation; Systemic Change.
Hotfrog and the Impact
Economy: A Whole New Paradigm for Global Business
Over the past few years, a new
infrastructure has been developed to support an entirely new business
paradigm. Hotfrog has
been participating in this process and is one of the first companies to live
and breath this new reality, Here are a few of our highlights:
Pioneer: Several years ago, Hotfrog became a Founding B Corporation. As
one of the world’s first “benefit corporations,” we are a certified triple
bottom line enterprise. Impact companies occupy three
dimensions — Social, Environmental, and Financial — and proactively work to
grow these three distinct forms of capital simultaneously.
Pioneer: Hotfrog became one of the first companies ever to
receive its initial equity investment as a Certified B Corporation.
Pioneer: On February 1, 2011, Hotfrog became the first company ever to complete a
transaction on a designated impact investing platform (Mission Markets).
Pioneer: During the summer of 2011, Hotfrog
became a GIIRS Pioneer Company.
Pioneer:Hotfrog’s founder, Laurie Lane-Zucker, recently launched the Impact Entrepreneur group on LinkedIn. Impact
Entrepreneur already has 1700+ registered participants
from 45 countries. Laurie has also been writing about his experiences building
the world’s first global impact company for Good Business International.
