Vincent Touboul Flachaire2023-2024 Columbia University Scholars
Mobilizing around a collective economic project that prioritizes social and climate justice for all rather than profit for a few.
Inspired by the work of Muhammad Yunus, Vincent Touboul Flachaire left school at 17 to found Goodeed, an organization that streamlines the donation processes for nonprofit organizations. Vincent’s innovative fundraising model invites young people to watch an online advertisement from a brand partner and transforms the advertising revenue directly into donations. Goodeed mobilizes 1 million donors monthly and has raised almost €10 million since 2014 for more than 300 nonprofits. As a social entrepreneur, Vincent is looking to bridge the world of technology and social impact. Through the Scholars program, he hopes to develop a new framework to build a new generation of donors and to accelerate companies’ social and ecological transition.
