CATALYZING SYSTEM-CHANGING, ENTREPRENEURIAL SOLUTIONS TO POVERTY

INVESTING IN SOLUTIONS FOR AN UNDERSERVED MARKET

Nearly 100 million Americans live at or below 2X the federal poverty line and the country struggles with socio-economic immobility and inequality. The social safety net is strained and, as a result, millions of hardworking families struggle to get by. The United States is in need of entrepreneurs with new ideas to seize the market opportunity for innovative solutions that tackle systems of poverty.
