To accelerate resource deployment to high impact projects and investments.


Aligning philanthropy and investing along mission is the best way to increase the likelihood of achieving impact objectives, but it is hard, time consuming, and expensive!

Most funders are either taking shots in the dark, building extensive in-house infrastructure or paying high overhead and fees with little outcomes alignment. Challenges include;

  • Knowing which projects/companies to fund
  • Properly evaluating opportunities and structuring terms
  • the ability to track & manage deployments once they’re made
  • Access to peers for collaboration


A centralized resource for mandate driven funders to source, diligence, structure, deploy and manage across the lab to market spectrum.
