About Builders Vision

Builders Vision is an impact platform dedicated to promoting a humane and healthy planet.  We utilize a range of philanthropic and investing capabilities to support, seed, and scale organizations dedicated to advancing issues of importance to Lukas Walton and Samantha Baiz Walton.  These include sustainable agriculture and equitable food systems, renewable energy, ocean health, animal well-being, the arts and artists, and women and caregivers. Today, Builders Vision encompasses a philanthropy and impact investing team (Builders Initiative), a venture and growth equity team (S2G Ventures), and an asset management team (Builders Asset Management), in addition to operations and legal teams.

At Builders Vision, we are guided collectively by the belief that markets can and should benefit society and the environment and that the most successful businesses in the future will be those that are purpose driven.

 

Our vision is “a humane and healthy planet,” which we relentlessly pursue and advance through our mission of “shifting markets and minds for good.”

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice are at the core of our mission to shift markets and minds for good.  We believe the change we want to see toward a humane and healthy planet starts with us.  We understand that diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice are long-term commitments, and while we aspire to be a catalyst for change, our journey starts from within.  We are committed to learning from others and doing the work to become a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and just organization, and will seek to promote those same values in the world around us.  We know that a diverse workforce allows everyone to see problems in more nuanced ways, creating the thought leadership needed to achieve the organization’s mission.  We actively seek to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool.  We are an equal opportunity employer, and we welcome people from all experiences, abilities, and perspectives to apply.
