Welcome to the home of THE WANDERING CAPITALIST

A non-profit charity founded in 2013


I am Brian Dubin, The Wandering Capitalist.

The Wandering Capitalist is a 501C3 public charity that raises money for organizations that serve at risk and underprivileged youths with an interest in entrepreneurship and small business ownership.


I am in awe of the world. I live to explore new places, customs and meet new people. My passion is to learn and understand the business practices, ideas, and cultures of other countries. As an entrepreneur and small business owner, I’ve traveled the world personally and professionally for the past 36 years, which has brought me much success and happiness.

A friend once told me that with blessings come responsibilities. In December 2013, I founded The Wandering Capitalist, a non-profit charity whose mission is to support and raise money for organizations that serve at-risk youths with an interest in entrepreneurship and small business ownership. The Wandering Capitalist is a self-funded 501C3 public charity. This means 100% of money raised is distributed.

Each year, I travel the world on several multi-month trips. These journeys are used as a vehicle to raise money for The Wandering Capitalist. During our first 8 years, The Wandering Capitalist has raised more than $120,000 from over 250 individual donors for our non-profit colleagues:

It is an honor to work with and support our charity partners, as their mission and core values compliment my vision for The Wandering Capitalist. This vision aims to make a difference in my current home of Chicago, as well as the home of my youth, Boston. To learn more about Build, NFTE and Future Founders, please click on their logos above.

I am asking you (family, friends, business partners and associates, and anyone else who believes) to contribute by donating each year to support The Wandering Capitalist’s philanthropic activities.

During my travels, I’ll blog about my experiences, things I find interesting and cool, and interview people from all walks of life. Trust me, I will not take myself too seriously!

In closing, I hope to inspire you to travel AND give back to America’s youth. Mark Twain was right, global travel is fatal to prejudice. Have fun, succeed, and do good, all at the same time - this is a life “in parallel”.

I’d love to hear from you, so please join my blog or social media.

I appreciate your fellowship and support.

Sincerely & Respectfully,

The Wandering Capitalist
