Philanthropist James Chen: Risk and the pivot that unlocked progress for poor vision
Play • 37 min
James Chen has dedicated nearly two decades to making vision care accessible and affordable. Tackling this issue hasn’t been easy, but drove home for him the importance of an entrepreneur’s mindset and domain expertise to help philanthropists like himself both reveal and back the game-changing ideas that will have the biggest impact. He talked to Meet the Leader about resilience, collaboration, founding the education campaign Clearly, and the critical pivot that unlocked key progress after years of work (leading to the first-ever UN resolution on vision last July). He also delivered an important message about ‘moonshot philanthropy’ - and the special magic that can come when philanthropists take on risk.
