We love sharing our private side.

COMMON Foundation is the non-profit and philanthropic arm of COMMON. COMMON is led by a fearless, visionary CEO, Mark Eckhardt and the Foundation by Matthew King.

COMMON is a worldwide community of businesses and professionals consisting of 225+ companies in 27 industries and 21 countries. COMMON accelerates the launch and growth of businesses that take care of the planet and all the creatures on it.

COMMON was created as a collaborative approach to accelerating social businesses and doesn’t require giving up ownership in your company or 3 months of your life. COMMON exist to help you tell your story, make great products, take care of your customers and change the world. It’s all about what we hold in common.

COMMON was Founded by Alex and Ana Bogusky, Rob Schuham and John Bielenberg in 2011 and began working with COMMON Foundation’s Founder, Matthew King, in 2014 as he collaborated with Alex and Ana on Fearless Revolution and Mark Eckhardt, COMMON’s CEO, on a Maniacal Business Attack (M.B.A.) in Oslo, Norway. In 2018, King and Eckhardt joined forces and rebranded the Foundation that King established in 2007, and thus we have a COMMON Foundation to create a raging river of good that leads to an ocean of opportunities.
