Meet David…

David Smith is a social entrepreneur, coalition builder, convener, systems thinker, and cross sector leader.  Most recently, he served as Managing Director of the Presidio Institute, helping changemakers gain a new lens on leadership and solve problems through cross sector collaboration. Under my leadership, the Presidio Institute launched the Cross Sector Leadership Fellows and Leaderosity, an online platform for social impact leaders.

In 2007, David shared office space with Common Cause when he founded and directed Mobilize.org, a national organization that works with over 200,000 young adults to improve democracy by investing in Millennial led solutions.
