We’re always striving for the ideal in purpose-driven business

The Small Giants Community is a designated L3C organization, a hybrid between a for-profit and a nonprofit entity that prioritizes mission and social purpose. Passionate, purposeful business leaders from around the world come to us to train and develop future leaders in their organizations, connect with like-hearted peers, and learn how to run a values-driven business. Whether you’re a budding leader who wants to grow or a founder/CEO looking for new business best friends, there’s a place for you here.

What started as a book grew into a community

In 2005, Bo Burlingham wrote the book Small Giants: Companies That Choose to Be Great Instead of Big. Instantly, business leaders around the world recognized that they weren’t the only ones who believed in a different way of doing business: prioritizing their people and making a great impact above all else. One of those leaders was Paul Spiegelman, our co-founder. The message of the book resonated with Paul so deeply that he approached Bo about establishing a community of like-minded purpose-driven leaders — and the Small Giants Community was born.

Today, the Small Giants Community is made up of thousands of leaders who are passionate and purposeful: they are committed to growing not just for growth’s sake, but to enhance the lives of the people that work for them.
