WORLD WIDE WEALTH
In 2000, the United Nations Millennium Declaration, signed by all 191 UN member states, set a target to halve world poverty by 2015, and end poverty by 2025.
In 2002, XL Results Foundation was launched to help make World Wide Wealth a reality. We set a goal to create a worldwide foundation of learning and networking resources for entrepreneurs to accelerate their ability to create and contribute wealth. The aim of this global, self-supporting network is to provide an ongoing cycle of creation and contribution.
We are now six years into that journey.
Whereas the classic learning institutions of the 20th century were united by pride of place, we see the learning networks of the 21st century united by pride of purpose. The purpose of XL Results Foundation is World Wide Wealth: a concerted and simultaneous creation and contribution of wealth, with 10% of new wealth created each year being contributed to the sustainable prosperity of the environment and our next generation.
By 2020 our goal is to have reached $1 billion of new wealth created annually, with $100 million being contributed and leveraged to end poverty and environmental degeneration.
How are we making this happen? Where are we now, and where will we be in 2020?
A NETWORK OF ENTREPRENEURS
When we launched in 2002, we had a vision of entrepreneurs connecting with each other through a global network, with information, knowledge and opportunities being exchanged daily. The right network dissolves the illusion of limited resources. It strips us of the excuse that we don’t have enough money, enough knowledge or enough time. You don’t need money if you know the people with money. You don’t need knowledge if you have the mentors with the knowledge, and you don’t need time if you have the team committing their time.
By 2020, we will have an international network of entrepreneurs, connected from the youngest and the newest to the most seasoned and accomplished. We will be conducting over 150 monthly events with leading speakers and entrepreneurs sharing their knowledge and stories around the globe. Any individual committed to growing their power to create and contribute will find an environment and support base in every one of the top 100 economies in the world.
Economists call ideas nonrival in the sense that one person’s use of an idea does not diminish the ability of others to use it as well. This is why we can envision a world in which everybody achieves prosperity. – Jeffrey Sachs, The End of Poverty
