Schmidt Futures is a philanthropic initiative, founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt, that seeks to improve societal outcomes through the thoughtful development of emerging science and technologies that can benefit humanity. To realize this vision, Schmidt Futures uses a broad set of tools — including gifts, grants, investments, and startup activity — for charitable, educational, and commercial efforts with a public purpose. Their initiative brings together the efforts of various charitable and non-charitable entities to improve their potential impact by making diverse types of capital available to the efforts they support.
As a venture facility for public benefit, they help people do more for others by imagining what’s possible, applying advanced science and computing thoughtfully, and working together in networks across fields.
