Marc shares his personal journey in philanthropy, starting when Colin Powell invited him to the 1997 America’s Promise conference, to creating Salesforce & its 1-1-1 policy: dedicating 1% equity, 1% profit, and 1% employee time to giving back. Marc’s key advice to entrepreneurs: the intentions you set for your companies right now are going to result is what your company becomes; clarity and vision are key, right from the start. Join us!
