Founder and venture capitalist Randy Haykin first began experimenting in winemaking as a leisurely pursuit. He was always intrigued by the winemaking process: it demanded the same level of creative problem solving, dedication, attention to detail, instinct and risk-taking as any successful enterprise. And while serving as a mentor to budding social entrepreneurs through the Gratitude Network, Randy saw the potential these social visionaries had in making a long-lasting difference in communities. It’s what drove him to turn his winemaking hobby into a business that funds the most effective social ventures around the world.
