From Founder to Philanthropist
How I Give is a Founders Pledge podcast about entrepreneurship, philanthropy and social change. We talk to founders, philanthropists and social innovators about what drives them, how they are rethinking social impact, and how we can do philanthropy better.
Climate change philanthropy with Ignaz Forstmeier, co-founder of Personio & Founders Pledge Climate Champion
While the world’s attention is steadfastly focused on battling the coronavirus pandemic, we must not lose momentum as we work to tackle the immense climate challenge we face. At Founders Pledge, we encourage our climate-focused members to support some amazing high-impact organisations using audacious advocacy to help secure our planet’s future. One of these incredible climate-minded members is Ignaz Forstmeier, co-founder of Personio, a true Climate Champion. In this episode of How I Give, we talk to Ignaz about his own personal giving journey, his passion for saving the planet and why he has chosen to give through the Founders Pledge Climate Fund.
Ignaz is a Founders Pledge member and Climate Cohort Champion, with a deep commitment to addressing the climate crisis. He supports early-stage tech companies as well as effective charities through funding and growth strategies. Prior to that, Ignaz co-founded Personio, a Munich-based SaaS company on a mission to digitise HR and recruiting processes in SMBs.
