Foundation

OVERVIEW

Description

Since 1999 we have supported great entrepreneurs with ideas that create a meaningful social impact, especially for people living in high-poverty communities. Over the years, we have provided these start-ups with support ranging from seed funding and co-working space in our offices, to hands-on support to help them build, launch, and test their concepts.
In 2015, many of our support programs moved into a new venture with the Robin Hood Foundation, Blue Ridge Labs. Since then, we have continued to support promising entrepreneurs, but we no longer accept unsolicited requests for funding.
