In service to humanity

It is this intersection of Silicon Valley principles of technology and entrepreneurship with the Jesuit goals of enabling a more just, humane, and sustainable world that attracts us to the Center.

We aim to positively impact the lives of 1 billion by 2020 

Over 4 billion people live without adequate food, clean water, modern energy and healthcare, education, or dignified jobs. We believe that social entrepreneurship can help address these problems, create livelihoods, and restore human dignity. We unite our mission to serve humanity with the Silicon Valley principles of innovation and entrepreneurship to lift people out of poverty.
