Global Conference 2010
Brent Schulkin is the Founder of a startup nonprofit called Carrotmob. Carrotmob leads a new type of consumer activism: Businesses compete to be the most socially responsible, then a network of consumers spends money to reward whichever business makes the strongest offer. It's the opposite of a boycott. After proving this model on a small scale around the world, Carrotmob is now growing its network of consumers so it can reward massive global companies in exchange for having them make massive global changes that benefit the world. Prior to Carrotmob, Schulkin's career has included social entrepreneurship, work in the solar industry, developing games and events for companies, directing a documentary film and a stint at Google. Schulkin graduated from Stanford University.
