Caravanserai Project is a hybrid social impact venture striving to identify, mobilize and energize mission-driven leaders, whether they are explorers or advanced. We support their entrepreneurial journeys of building sustainable, relevant, future-ready and system-change ventures, for profit and nonprofit alike. Our work focuses on the development and implementation of accountability systems, supplying specialized skills and futures-thinking strategies and bringing together networks of individuals to help their ideas flourish, accelerate and change the world.
Our contribution to accelerating irreversible system-change efforts prioritizes:
Creating opportunities and supporting early-stage mission-driven entrepreneurs
Speeding up the work of committed advanced mission-driven leaders
Weaving a stronger bolder fabric through powerful networks of individuals who are connected and work together for a common vision
We are inspired by the role the caravanserai played throughout history. The caravanserais were well known meeting places along trade routes from Asia, North Africa to Southeast Europe. They provided merchants and travelers with a place to rest and opportunities to exchange and trade goods, as well as information about the challenges ahead and the situation in the regions they were about to cross. They had a crucial part in the cross-fertilization and exchanges of cultures by exposing travelers and locals to new ideas, beliefs and languages.
