Schmidt Futures Challenges Project

Imagine a world in which positive benefits of science and technology help everyone to enjoy better lives. This is the vision of Schmidt Futures. We advance society through technology, inspire scientific breakthroughs, and promote shared prosperity. As a venture facility for public benefit, we provide early risk capital to the most clever ideas and most exceptional people across disciplines.

The Schmidt Futures Challenges Project harnesses the power of technology, science, and people working together to take on 20 of the biggest challenges facing humanity over the next 20 years. To accelerate progress against these challenges, Schmidt Futures discovers the best work being done around the world and the change agents driving that work. We then supply resources (research, expertise, ideas), invest early stage financial capital, foster coalitions and partnerships, and deploy talent to join high-potential efforts that are already underway. Through our activities, we seek to inspire broader action from other funding partners, philanthropies, and organizations.
