Guggenheim Partners Launches PROPEL10 Venture Strategy

Application Process Seeks Non-Profits Using Innovative Solutions to Solve Enduring Social Problems

Guggenheim Partners is proud to announce the launch of a new Corporate Social Responsibility venture strategy designed to identify and foster the development of visionary non-profit organizations that have chosen to tackle some of the most challenging issues facing the world today – PROPEL10.

As part of the PROPEL10 program, Guggenheim Partners will invest up to $100,000 in 10 high-performing, early stage non-profit organizations that use innovative solutions to solve enduring social problems. In addition, the firm will deploy its “creative capital,” any non-financial contribution that Guggenheim Partners can provide through accessing its network of specialized skills and resources.

“We are excited to blend our financial contributions with our creative capital to propel non-profit organizations to greater scale,” said Penny Zuckerwise, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Guggenheim Partners. “We have a track record as a firm of producing tremendous results that stem from applying new thinking to market challenges, and we look forward to replicating that approach in driving Guggenheim’s social impact through this venture strategy.”

Interested and eligible non-profit organizations may submit applications online at www.guggenheimpartners.com/propel10. Applications are due by May 31 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Vetting will occur in multiple rounds, and a portfolio of organizations will be selected by year-end.
