The Whittle Group LLC was founded in January 2011 by Dennis Whittle and works with senior leaders of organizations that are at a strategic inflection point.
Dennis is currently co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Feedback Labs - a global network of over 300 organizations in the aid, philanthropy, and government sectors committed to asking three questions: "What do regular people want? Are they getting it? If not, what should we do differently?"
Dennis was also co-founder of GlobalGiving, where he was CEO from 2000 to 2010. GlobalGiving is a market for ideas, information, and funding that democratizes aid and philanthropy and helps resources flow to where they have the highest impact. The first global crowdsourcing and crowfunding website, GlobalGiving has facilitated $300 million in funding to 18,000 projects in 170 countries around the world from over 700,000 individual donors, many of the most innovative Fortune 100 companies, and leading foundations. Forbes called GlobalGiving one of "ten startups changing the world."
Dennis is a Visiting Scholar at New York University, and has also been Executive Chairman of Ashoka Changemakers, Professor of the Practice and Social Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Visiting Lecturer at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and Visiting Fellow at the Center for Global Development.
