Because collective action is the only way to overcome the magnitude of challenges we’re up against, Silicon Valley Bank, the bank of the world’s most innovative companies and their investors, with Founders Pledge, which empowers entrepreneurs to do immense good, have formed the COVID-19 Global Impact & Innovation Fund. The mission is to mobilize the innovation community to fund direct relief, immediate interventions, and long-term resilience in the face of current and future pandemics worldwide.
Managed by Founders Pledge and seeded with a $1 million donation from Silicon Valley Bank, our global fund supports the most promising high-impact initiatives curated by Founders Pledge’s dedicated research experts. Continuously informed by our global entrepreneurial, technology and philanthropy networks, our fund will keep pace with evolving global needs.
Established specific goals for this funding include:
•Stop the spread of COVID-19 and support a robust medical response
•Provide direct relief to communities in need globally
•Build long-term resilience for future pandemics
Our mission is to empower entrepreneurs to do immense good. We approach this mission with a deep understanding of the sector – Founders Pledge was built for and by entrepreneurs, and launched out of Founders Forum, Europe's foremost network of digital and technology entrepreneurs. Our board members, advisors, sponsors and funders include some of the most influential voices in the tech sector and social sector.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
