Conduit Leadership

 

 

About us

 

 

 

'Profit for purpose’ has evolved.

The Conduit is home to a global community of people who are passionate about achieving positive social, environmental and economic change. Conduit members share the belief that the world’s most significant problems can be viewed as opportunities for entrepreneurial solutions, and that knowledge, skills, technology, and capital can lead to transformative impact. Our vision is a just, prosperous and sustainable world: we’re committed to supporting our community to achieve this vision, whilst also ensuring that we exemplify sustainable and ethical hospitality.
 
The Conduit was established to accelerate crosssectoral collaboration and generate solutions to the world’s greatest challenges, such as climate change, poverty, food security, healthcare, and racial and gender equity. Our diverse and varied community of members join The Conduit to learn, to be inspired, to make new personal and professional connections, or to access capital, business advice and support. Our community includes social entrepreneurs, investors, activists, academics, policymakers, creatives, and leaders from across the corporate and non-profit worlds, with over 80 countries represented.
 
The Conduit provides members with inspiring spaces to collaborate, network, dine and host events, and offers over 200 programme events a year across eight key thematic areas – racial equity, climate action and sustainability, education and development, employment and economic opportunity, sexuality and gender equity, peace and justice, health and wellbeing, and arts and culture – which underpin our whole ethos. Located in the heart of Covent Garden, our breathtaking six-storey building has been designed to nurture creativity and entrepreneurship. As well as private meeting and event spaces, restaurants and bars, the building also hosts a bookshop, podcast studio, and a rooftop terrace overlooking London’s skyline.
 
The Conduit’s sister company, Conduit Connect, is an impact-investment platform which has already raised over £22m capital for impact enterprises. Conduit Connect investor members become part of an ecosystem that enables impact investment, including access to a portfolio of vetted direct investments and funds, peer-to-peer roundtables, syndication opportunities, bespoke diligence training and pitch events.
