Welcome to AIM2Flourish. We’re so glad you’re here

We’re grateful to be an initiative of the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit at Weatherhead School of Management — Case Western Reserve University.

AIM2Flourish is the world’s first global initiative steering future business leaders towards achieving the and a flourishing world for all.

We do this by being the world’s first higher-education curriculum for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), story platform, and prize for positive and profitable business innovation.

As well, we are committed to the global movement for responsible business and management education. Demonstrating global reach, scalability, and impact potential, AIM2Flourish’s partners reach more than 2,100 management schools worldwide and the global “business for good” community.

AIM2Flourish is an unparalleled opportunity to dynamically connect students, business leaders, management schools, media makers, and investors across geographies, generations, and industries. We help business leaders, students, and professors share their innovation stories’ impact, accelerate their contributions, and inspire others with their examples.

Part 1: The AIM2Flourish Curriculum

We offer a highly adaptable, professor-facilitated curriculum that combines classroom learning about transformative business models with the outside experience of students interviewing innovative CEOs.

The AIM2Flourish team supports business school professors around the world by providing videos, classroom presentations, and materials. We also offer monthly Professor Community video conferences, during which professors share their experiences and hear what’s new with the program.

Using the UN SDGs as their lens, students research and identify an innovation and interview a business leader about it. Their stories live on the platform as sources of inspiration for others.

Part 2: The Story Platform is our story platform. This is where our AIM2Flourish students submit their stories, and their professors review them before publication. As of January 2019, we have published over 1,700 stories that show how business can be both profitable and positive — and help achieve the UN Global Goals.


Part 3: The Annual Flourish Prizes

We celebrated the best-of-the-best stories and recognized students, professors, and business leaders with the first Flourish Prizes at the June 2017 Fourth Global Forum at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.

Visit the AIM2Flourish Medium site for full Flourish Prizes coverage.

The 2018 Flourish Prizes were chosen from all the stories published on between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.

AIM2Flourish stories are about business innovations from for-profit companies (including B Corps) that help achieve one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), such as ending poverty and ensuring peace and justice. We are looking for examples of business innovations that increase economic prosperity while contributing to a healthy world and human well-being.

Every AIM2Flourish story is reviewed by one of our AIM2Flourish Story Editors, a dedicated volunteer team that includes award-winning journalists, media makers, management coaches, and professors. The final selections for the Flourish Prizes are made by a distinguished panel of business leaders and scholars.
