About Rippleworks Foundation

Our Story

The origins of Rippleworks’ story are rooted in entrepreneurship. Chris Larsen and Doug Galen first met when they built their first company together in 1997: E-Loan, one of the first ever online lending startups that increased access to affordable mortgages. 

In 2015, Chris and Doug co-founded Rippleworks to harness the power of entrepreneurship and innovation to tackle the world’s toughest challenges. We started with a blank slate and an open mandate: to freely understand and meet the needs of impactful, scaling social ventures. 

Our journey has taken us from late-night sessions in Doug’s backyard to crowded co-working spaces to our current office in Redwood City, California. Our team keeps growing, our programs keep expanding, but our mission stays the same: we are relentlessly focused on the needs of social ventures, providing the practical support entrepreneurs and their teams need to scale and improve more lives.
