William C Doll

In 2012, William founded Syneidesis – a bridge group for the principal members of Traditional & Impact Families. This cross-over society really took shape in 2013 when James W. McGlothlin helped organize a meeting at his private golf club in Virginia called The Olde Farm (TOF). Among its members, TOF includes Chairmen, Board members and CEOs of Fortune 500 companies as well as icons of American sport. Before founding Syneidesis, William spent 5 years on Wall Street, starting as an entry-level salesman for a B2B events company. By 2011, he was Sales Director of the flagship NYC office overseeing a team 70 personnel working on more than 20 projects. During these years, he formed deep relationships in the Oil and Gas sector. He and his wife, Ekaterina, moved to NYC in 2004 from Ithaca, NY where they both graduated Cornell University. Prior to NYC, William produced, edited, and shot documentary films with Oscar nominated, Emmy Award winning verité filmmaker Slawomir Grunberg

Describe the Impact of a Project you’re focused on.

The SWF-FO (Sovereign Wealth Fund- Family Office) Alliance is a consortium of global investors looking to grow reliable climate-focused SMEs, scale proven carbon-free energy sources, and develop climate startups that have the potential to become world leading companies. By pooling resources, we believe that SWFs and FOs have the potential to exponentially grow climate solutions.

What results do you hope for when the impact is amplified?

Ultimately we are working to solve the climate crisis. To that end, we hope that others will join our alliance or try replicating the model.

What do you have to offer as a connector? What can you give as expertise to others?

Syneidesis is a small but wonderful group. There are several social occasions throughout the year where we can introduce other Families/ connectors to current members. We also are creating a database for Climate opportunities that will be accessible to the Syneidesis and SW-FO members. These are solutions ranging from tech VC to PE to large scale Infra and even funds. For the right opportunities, we can offer a platform to showcase these deals.
