Shared value defines a new role for business in helping to overcome the global education and unemployment crisis. By aligning profit with purpose, companies can become essential partners for schools, nonprofits, and governments, while simultaneously discovering new ways to increase their productivity, strengthen industry clusters, and expand their markets. In doing so, they create the power to scale solutions to our world’s greatest education challenges far beyond what they could do with philanthropy alone.

The Shared Value Initiative and FSG are partnering with corporate, nonprofit, education, and government leaders around the world to help them create greater shared value in education through new business models, research, knowledge-sharing, and cross-sector collaborations.
