Co-Founded by Silicon Valley Entrepreneur, Keith Krach, the Global Mentor Network is an exciting pay-it-forward enterprise with a noble mission to solve one of the world’s great challenges: building the next generation of principled, transformational leaders.
Aspiring Leaders know that mentorship is the best way to learn leadership, but great mentors are hard to find. Experienced Leaders have a lot of lessons to share, but one-on-one mentoring is time consuming and has limited impact. GMN solves the problem through online mentorship at scale.Learn More

Krach Family Foundation
The Krach Family Foundation funds a broad range of transformational causes, including Opportunity International, City Year, the Children’s Autistic Network, and New Story.
The Foundation also funds the Keith Krach leadership scholarship at Purdue University. It has been awarded to five students each year since 2009.
As founder and chairman of the DocuSign IMPACT foundation, Krach established a partnership with the Special Olympics starting in 2015. The Special Olympics gave DocuSign a unique opportunity to help transform the lives of thousands of competing athletes by transforming a noble cause.
Krach learned that at the start of every Special Olympics event, every athlete must present a current, doctor-signed permission slip at registration in order to compete. Imagine the heartbreak of not being able to compete because paperwork is not in order. Krach’s team digitized the process with DocuSign, transforming the organization, and ensuring that thousands of athletes can achieve their dreams.
