We’re a foundation focused on social tech entrepreneurship. We investigate, ideate and invest in big ideas for a better world

A tiny smartphone is powerful enough to guide 120 million Apollo 11 rockets to the moon. The tools to change the world are in the hands of millions. Yet we google cats. To us, life hacks aren’t just finding clever ways to make living easy, rather finding better ways to be humans. We investigate, ideate and invest with the ambition to create as much good as possible using what we know best: Product and business development, creativity and technology. We work and scale as a business – data-driven, clear metrics and a strong demand for profit. But for us, profit isn’t measured in money but in lives.

We are non-religious non-partisan and not for profit. We have high believe in Effective Altruism. We support and invest in both for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations – whatever we believe makes most sense to have a positive impact on society. Even though we are based in Stockholm, Sweden we see ourselves as world citizens.
