Founder & CEO of Encore.org; World Economic Forum Social Entrepreneur of the Year
Marc Freedman, President and CEO of Encore.org, is one of the nation’s leading experts on the longevity revolution.
He is a member of the Wall Street Journal’s “Experts” panel, a frequent commentator in the media and the author of five books. The New York Times described his book, The Big Shift: Navigating the New Stage Beyond Midlife, as “an imaginative work with the potential to affect our individual lives and our collective future.” His book, How to Live Forever: The Enduring Power of Connecting the Generations, was published by Hachette Book Group in 2018.
Originator of the encore career idea linking second acts to the greater good, Freedman co-founded Experience Corps to mobilize people over 50 to improve the school performance and prospects of low-income elementary school students in 22 U.S. cities. He also spearheaded the creation of the Encore Fellowships program, a one-year fellowship helping individuals translate their midlife skills into second acts focused on social impact, and the Purpose Prize, an annual $100,000 prize for social entrepreneurs in the second half of life. (AARP now runs both Experience Corps and the Purpose Prize.)
Freedman and Encore.org received the 2018 Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence. He was named Social Entrepreneur of the Year by the World Economic Forum, was recognized as one of the nation’s leading social entrepreneurs by Fast Company magazine three years in a row, and has been honored with the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship. He has been a visiting scholar at Stanford University, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and King’s College, University of London. Freedman serves on the boards and advisory councils of numerous groups, including The George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis, the Stanford University Distinguished Careers Institute, the Milken Institute’s Center for the Future of Aging, and the EnCorps STEM Teachers Program.
