At Social Capital, our mission is to advance humanity by solving the world’s hardest problems. We believe that empowering entrepreneurs who seek to improve the lives of the people around them is the best way to create more opportunity globally. At its core, Social Capital is an organization that identifies hard problems and assembles experts, IP and experiments that allow us to learn about these problems deeply. Once we have conviction about a solution, we will then execute — by building, buying, or investing in whatever it takes to solve the problem we identified. And to better serve the people building these companies, we are building a new kind of organization. Social Capital invests from a balance sheet of permanent capital to fuel entrepreneurship at all stages, all over the world, so that we can partner with entrepreneurs for as long as it takes. We leverage data and machine learning to build great companies and then help them be operationally excellent to drive long term success.
