Our Story

The word TRUST embodies our values on many levels. At its core, it’s about trusting in
a “holistic” education and transformative experiences that drive a professional career towards three key outcomes:


  • Environments that flourish with healthy natural eco-systems

  • Social frameworks that are diverse, equitable and inclusive for all people

  • Governance that rests on inclusive, humanitarian and diverse stakeholder perspectives

Our goal is for these values to be expressed through the impacts of young professionals in all fields, with support from our program partners. To this end, Martini Education & Opportunity Trust (MEOT) puts “wind in the sails” of people who find effective levers of change through a systems-view, and not through power and privilege, but through an ability to collaborate and connect deeply by listening, empathy and humility.


Brent Martini supported the founding of the Social Innovation Collaboratory at Fordham University in 2014. This space invited interdisciplinary students with shared values to actively engage in ideas and actions that addressed sustainability issues they cared most about. Our work today continues in an online “collaboratory” that facilitates same, and with no borders or boundaries.

The Martini Education & Opportunity Trust (MEOT) was created in 2019 in partnership by Brent Martini and Carey Weiss, with Julie Mastrarrigo as Senior Design Partner. We are joined by eight “Martini Fellows,” holistic-minded young professionals with active roles that reinforce business for good of society.


We envision a future with a thriving natural ecosystem and a flourishing human
society free of injustices and inequities through more enlightened businesses doing ever more good, while doing well for their stakeholders. We hope you join us in this vision as
we invest in educational platforms to support young people’s professional pathways
for design of a sustainable planet.
