Programs

Halcyon’s work in the social enterprise space is rooted in three not-so-big bets:

1. In the long run, impact-driven businesses will outperform their traditional counterparts.
2. Impact-driven businesses represent a powerful opportunity to drive equity and inclusivity in the workplace and in society.
3. Impact-driven business is the only viable future for capitalist society, and represents the easiest path forward to solving the problems of the 21st century.

Halcyon is committed to championing businesses and founders whose work drives the world forward. Since 2014 the Halcyon Incubator has helped fellows’ ventures raise over $500 million, create more than 6,000 jobs, and positively impact over 9.2 million lives.
