Season 1, Episode 78: Becky Kanis Margiotta – Social Transformation Agent & Possibility Seer

Today’s guest is Becky Kanis Margiotta. Becky, with her friend Joe McCannon, founded The Billions Institute to answer one question: how do we unleash a billion people to solve the world’s biggest problems in the next 50 years? 

Prior to this venture, Becky led the 100,000 Homes Campaign for Community Solutions. Featured on 60 Minutes, the Campaign was a nationwide large-scale change effort to find and house 100,000 of the most long-term and medically vulnerable homeless people in America by July 2014.

And as if that weren’t enough, before that, Becky commanded two Special Operations companies in the US Army. She graduated from West Point and holds a Master’s Degree from The New School. She was recognized by the White House as a Champion of Change in 2013 and by the Schwab Foundation as a Social Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015.
