Social justice advocate and entrepreneur Robert F. Smith is the founding director and President of the charitable nonprofit Fund II Foundation and Founder, Chairman and CEO of Vista Equities Partners. He stepped up as a REFORM Alliance Founding Partner because Smith is committed to equity and the reform of a biased criminal justice system. Smith also uses his platform to advocate for diversity at the corporate level and encourages technology and financial institutions to invest in communities of color during this time of reinvigorated social movement.
Many know Smith as the mogul who liberated 400 Morehouse College Class of 2019 graduates from student loan debt. Creating regenerative infrastructure to uplift the human spirit is at the heart of Smith’s business and philanthropic ideals.
