If you have an idea for improving things around you, with a new device or a different process, we’re prepared to make a seed or early-stage investment to help make it happen.
Gender, ethnicity, age, community… To us it’s not a differentiator, but a source of sharp insights into needs and opportunities.
“It” has to make a positive difference to your community. It could be a new benefit or relieve an existing pain point. A thing or a process.
“Leave it better than you found it” is the metric. The difference your idea for a product or a process makes to your community may not come at a cost to our environment that cannot be repaid.
But it’s not a must. If your idea flies, leveraging technology to broaden its impact beyond your community only makes it more powerful.
