“It's the responsibility of capitalism to not just build great businesses, but to have positive impacts on the communities that we work in.”

At 23-years-old, Rajeev Singh co-founded the leading global travel and expense management firm, Concur. After 20 years working at and scaling the business, Rajeev left in search of a new endeavor that would give him a greater sense of impact and mission. Rajeev’s new venture, Accolade, seeks to reinvent how employees use their benefits and healthcare resources. In an often messy and confusing healthcare system, Rajeev’s mission is to personalize accessibility and drastically improve the experience of healthcare users.

Rajeev shares his experience with local volunteering and campaign opportunities like All In Seattle, which launched early in the pandemic and encouraged business owners to put their unused business expenses back into the community. On this week’s episode of Start Small, Dream BIG, tune in to learn about Rajeev’s entrepreneurial drive and why he sees company culture and bringing a positive impact to the community as essential factors to building a successful business.
