Industry Groups and Contacts

Goals

To find 20 industry groups similar to the Alliance to End Plastic Waste that meet the following criteria: 1) they must have a positive social impact mission, 2) they must have a membership consisting of multiple Fortune 1000 type companies, and 3) they must have a budget of at least $2 million to sponsor an outreach program. In addition, find the person in charge of company innovation. In the absence of such a role, find the most senior marketing executive. Include their name, email, and LinkedIn profile. This information will be used in the development of a sales research project.
