About Schmidt Futures
Schmidt Futures is a philanthropic initiative, co-founded by Eric and Wendy Schmidt, that finds exceptional people and helps them do more for others together.
As a venture facility for public benefit, Schmidt Futures aims to create public value from private philanthropy through risk transfer, often investing in people without a track record or with experimental ideas.
In its working method, Schmidt Futures brings talent together into networks to solve the hardest problems; challenges and competes ideas to drive higher returns for society; builds partnerships across sectors; and equips promising ideas to scale through the thoughtful use of modern tools from science and technology.
