The mission of the Centre is to pioneer the venture philanthropy model in Canada by merging great ideas from non-profits, leading knowledge from our Sector Partners, and smart money from strategic investors to achieve massive social impact.
Our vision is to create a portfolio comprised of non-profit organizations advancing game-changing interventions to address barriers to health, education and employment, generating $1 billion of economic impact per year at scale.
LEAP is inspired by the life of David Pecaut, corporate strategist and civic entrepreneur. Our founders—Kilian Berz, Sam Duboc, Joe Manget and Helen Burstyn, alongside BCG—created the Pecaut Centre in 2012 to honour David’s legacy. The Pecaut Centre incubated LEAP.
