Doug Miller

He’s spent the past 20 years building the infrastructure for venture philanthropy across the globe. Now, as he belatedly fulfils a promise made to his family to retire and help his grandson count the stars, Doug Miller shares what drove his resolve to “do something better”, why he wants people to have “skin in the game” – and his conviction that the “1920s model” of funding solutions must now develop at speed and scale to keep pace with today's challenges.
