Ben Powell is the CEO and founder of Agora Partnerships. The mission at Agora Partnerships is to accelerate the shift to a more sustainable, humane, and successful economy. To accomplish this mission, the organization works with early stage entrepreneurs building businesses to create positive change in the world.
