InSpring’s founders are passionate believers in the power of youth ingenuity to shape a better world. For many years, they worked with companies from across industry sectors on strategies to create impact and value for society. They noticed a recurring gap….the voice of young people. So they created InSpring to put that right.

Alastair is motivated by young people developing the self-resilience to thrive. He recognises that young people will inherit a planet which has been handed to them in poor condition by previous generations, and a society that is increasingly polarised. By allowing them to participate, he believes that young people can collectively solve these challenges, empowering them in the process. He was previously COO of Trucost Plc, one of the world’s leading impact data and analytics providers. He started his career in finance and recognises the growing opportunity to use positive social impact to drive financial performance.
“The power of youth is the common wealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present and our future. No segment in society can match the power, idealism, enthusiasm and courage of young people.”
At the heart of our platform is our collaboration with the world’s largest youth education and entrepreneurship network, JA Worldwide, which has been inspiring and equipping hundreds of millions of young people to thrive for 100 years.
