- Geoffrey Canada, president and CEO of Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ) since 1990, is one of the country's best-known social entrepreneurs. When Canada arrived at HCZ, he observed that a number of programs seemed to be doing some good for some children but that his efforts were largely spent in obtaining continuing funding for each program, without much demand from the funders that the programs demonstrate outcomes. And he needed to think about how the programs related to each other. Then he had an insight. What if he started with the outcomes he wanted to achieve and then designed comprehensive and integrated programs to achieve them, supporting children from "cradle to college" and driving all efforts by measures of results?
