Omidyar Network is a philanthropic investment firm that invests in entrepreneurs and their visionary ideas to create opportunities for people to improve their own lives, their communities, and the world around them.
We take calculated risks at the early stages of innovation, investing in both nonprofits and for-profits, helping to transform promising ideas into successful ventures. As an active investor, we offer more than just financial support. We provide vital human capital capabilities, from serving on boards to consulting on strategy, coaching executives to recruiting new talent. We connect promising investees to entrepreneurial visionaries with business know-how. We also leverage the tremendous capacity of Web and mobile technologies to go beyond incremental improvement and make a significant, widespread impact.
Since 2004, Omidyar Network has committed over $1 billion to for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations that foster economic advancement and create opportunities for individuals across our six key areas: Digital Identity, Education, Emerging Tech, Financial Inclusion, Governance & Citizenship Engagement, and Property Rights.
