Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

In this installment of Young Visionaries, social entrepreneur Jeremy Heimans describes his vision for creating a home for sparking social movements.

In this season of Young Visionaries, we talk to entrepreneurs tackling social, cultural and environmental goals by harnessing entrepreneurial principles and out-of-the-box thinking to create positive change.

From the very early age of 8, Jeremy Heimans was an outspoken advocate on global issues in his native Australia. Today, he's taken that desire for change further by launching Purpose, the three-year old New York-based social movements consultancy. Purpose works with companies and organizations like Google and the ACLU, to help further specific causes using, among other thigns, social media, political organizing and behavioral economics. The three-year old firm also incubates social movements, in house.

See how the company aims to grow the business and its social mission.
