Omidyar Network is a philanthropic investment firm dedicated to harnessing the power of markets to create opportunity for people to improve their lives. Established in 2004 by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and his wife Pam, the organization invests in and helps scale innovative organizations to catalyze economic and social change. Omidyar Network has committed more than $1 billion to for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations that foster economic advancement and encourage individual participation across multiple initiatives, including Education, Emerging Tech, Financial Inclusion, Governance & Citizen Engagement, and Property Rights. Omidyar Network invests in entrepreneurswho share our commitment to advancing social good at the pace and scale the world needs today. They are focused on six key areas we believe are building blocks for prosperous, stable, and open societies: Digital Identity, Education, Emerging Tech, Financial Inclusion, Governance & Citizen Engagement, and Property Rights. We take calculated risks in the earliest stages of innovation, helping to transform promising ideas into successful ventures. As an active impact investor, they offer more than just financial support. They provide vital human capital capabilities, from serving on boards to consulting on strategy, coaching executives to recruiting new talent. They connect promising investees to entrepreneurial visionaries with business know-how. They also leverage the tremendous capacity of Web and mobile technologies to go beyond incremental improvement and make a significant, widespread impact. Understanding the scale and importance of this work, they don’t undertake the challenge alone. The most powerful force for change lies in their connection with others: business, government, nonprofits, and individual partners. Together, they can use their resources to transform scarcity into abundance and put enduring opportunity within reach of more people worldwide.
