Purpose and Activities

The fund makes both investments and grants, identifying likeminded organizations to support, help scale, and collaborate with to help realize their full potential. The fund's efforts are organized around two investment initiatives: 1) Access to Capital - The fund works to create economic opportunity for people in emerging markets. The focus of this initiative is on microfinance, small/medium enterprises, emerging market ventures, and property rights; 2) Media, Markets and Transparency- The fund emphasizes technology that promotes transparency, accountability, and trust across media, markets, and government. The focus of this initiative is on social media, marketplaces, government transparency, and trust/reputation and identity.
