Taylor Conroy

Founder, Change Heroes

Inspired after a life-altering trip to Kenya, he sold his real estate business to launch Change Heroes, a ground-breaking friend funding platform that has raised well over $1,000,000 to fund 100+ projects, including schools, libraries, scholarships, and anti sex trafficking work in 12 developing countries that will impact over 100,000 people.

He gave the opening keynote at the Harvard University Social Enterprise Conference, and lectures on social entrepreneurship at New York University. Taylor recently addressed delegates from around the world at the United Nations in New York, and is considered a pioneer and thought leader in the social entrepreneurship and social enterprise space.

All that being said - Taylor is equally happy to have surfed the longest wave in the world (in Peru), meditated with Zen monks in Japan, trained as a yoga teacher in Costa Rica, run with the bulls in Spain, built schools in Kenya, stepped foot on every continent and explored 35 countries.
