102,000 jobs, with companies that own the future

A job is the promise of a more secure and fulfilled life. It creates the daily opportunity to contribute to enterprising goals larger than ourselves, and to the wellbeing of our families. Every good job that a business creates has a multiplier effect on communities and societies.
In 2012, LeapFrog set a target for ourselves and our portfolio companies of employing 50,000 people by 2020. Many thought this public commitment, at the Clinton Global Initiative, was foolishly ambitious. Today we are so pleased to tell you that LeapFrog companies employ 102,468 people across Asia, Africa and Latin America. Together, we support double the number of jobs, in half the time.
Thank you for being part of this movement towards profit-with-purpose business.
We are also today sharing some other transformative results, below. In a world filled with new challenges and volatility, there is evidence for hope: Institutions and societies can make better investments, tapping new sources of growth and shaping the future.
