Joe Hsueh is the Co-Founder & CEO of Systems Impact Multi-Family Office (SIMFO), a systems-based impact-driven multi-family office that works with leading families and organizations to catalyze systems change towards a regenerative and inclusive economy.
Prior to SIMFO, Joe founded Omplexity, a systems mapping and change consultancy, and co-founded the Academy for Systems Change. Since earning his Ph.D in System Dynamics from MIT, Joe has spent his career developing the theory and practice of participatory systems mapping to help corporations, foundations, governments, multinational NGOs, and grassroots coalitions co-develop strategy for systems change across a range of issues. Building on his experience as a consultant to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), The World Economic Forum, Walton Family Foundation, Sustainable Apparel Coalition and others, 2021 will see the launch of SIMFO, an ecosystem builder that brings next gen philanthropists, impact investors, social innovators and systems conveners together to catalyze systems change using a blended finance approach.
Joe has lectured at MIT, Harvard and National Taiwan University. Before pursuing his doctorate, Joe earned a Masters of Public Administration in International Development from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. He first began to glimpse the importance of self transformation as an enabler of systems change during a gap year spent living and working in a Buddhist Monastery.
