R. Paul Herman
R. Paul Herman invented “HIP = (Human Impact + Profit)” in 2004 to connect for-profit investments that delivered high human impact with investors seeking the same. Paul and the HIP team have launched the HIP 100 Index (SM), consulted to high-net-worth investors, and advised corporate clients like Wal-Mart and NIKE. In addition, the HIP Scorecard (SM) has been published in Fast Company since 2007. Herman's financial acumen was honed at the Wharton School and McKinsey & Co., and he accelerated social entrepreneurs at Ashoka.org and Omidyar Network. His insights have been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Forbes, BusinessWeek, and on CNN and CNBC.
