Intentional funding drives innovationProgressive philanthropy Focus areas

Overview of activities

“Progressive philanthropy” goes beyond traditional philanthropic approaches (activities to improve society) in which the emphasis is on donations and subsidies, and seeks to resolve social problems by adopting techniques from impact investing, such as diverse approaches to providing funds, including investments, and making results visible. By committing funds to support the building of prototypes for businesses that have no precedent, we aim to have a substantial impact on society.
