Adam Rockefeller Growald is an investor, philosopher and philanthropist whose dream for the world is that all might experience life as a precious and wonderful gift. He is committed to creating a joyful, spiritually connected world in which individuals are empowered, communities are connected, and ecosystems are balanced and thriving. As a 5th-generation descendant of business magnate and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Sr., Adam comes from a lineage—on both sides of his family—that valued both enterprise and giving back. After Adam received his BA in Philosophy from Princeton University, he focused on synthesizing insights from traditions of East and West, addressing a deep curiosity about the workings of the universe and our relationship to it. Having worked in the past as a management and brand strategy consultant at Bain and Lippincott, Adam now applies philosophical insight to his investing, board service, and advisory work. Currently, he serves on the boards of the Rockefeller Family Fund, the Growald Family Fund, and the National Center for Family Philanthropy. Adam is a member of the NEXUS Global Youth Summit and the Global Philanthropists Circle of Synergos, is a Director of Eleusis, and is an Advisor to Thankful.org and FullCycle.
