Cheryl Dahle cares about breathing. And so she cares about fish.

An entrepreneur and journalist focused on researching, developing and launching ways to solve large-scale, systemic problems, Cheryl is the founder of Future of Fish, a non-profit innovation hub that supports the collective impact of entrepreneurs whose ideas help end overfishing.

Previously, Cheryl was a director at Ashoka, where she distilled knowledge from 2,500 fellows to provide strategic insight to foundations. She also spent a decade writing about technology, social entrepreneurship, and business for publications including The New York Times, CIO, and Fast Company—where she founded the Social Capitalist Awards—and served as a consultant helping leading organizations including Humanity United, Nike, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship at Duke University, to craft business solutions to complex social and environmental problems.

Named a national ‘Eco-Innovator’ by USA Today in 2013 and a finalist in the Buckminster Fuller Challenge in 2012, Cheryl has also been a Change Agent in Residence with Bainbridge Graduate Institute and is the board chair of Criterion Institute.
