Verizon Communications is the world leader in delivering innovation in communications, mobility, information and entertainment. The company provides superior broadband, video and other wireless and wireline services to consumers, businesses, governments and wholesale customers across the globe. Verizon’s most exciting growth opportunities occur where business and social interests intersect. 

Verizon believes there are tremendous opportunities to grow its business by applying its innovative technologies to help solve important social issues. Creating powerful answers to societal challenges in energy management, healthcare and education is what Verizon calls “Shared Success” — leveraging the power of the company’s networks, technology and people to create long-term shareowner value by addressing the needs of the customers and communities it serves.

Through its Shared Success strategy, Verizon: identifies and accelerates deployment of technology solutions that create the greatest shared value resulting in increased revenue and quantifiable social impact; and uses innovative philanthropy to accelerate the deployment of its technology into underserved communities to become an incubator of social change.
