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.
Social Capital is not open to new investors.
Hard problems and humanity
Solve the former and you’ll propel the latter.
Solve the world's hardest problems and you'll propel humanity the furthest.
But before you can solve them, you need to determine them. Part of our work at Social Capital is to figure that out. We demand a deep knowledge of the problem before committing to a solution. So we identify, research, and learn, seeking the latest knowledge from the leading experts.
Once we have conviction, we execute. We’ll build, buy, or invest in whatever it takes.
We’re in it for the long term. We’ll stick around until there’s a solution because we’re not here to make a quick buck from a quick fix.
We’re here to serve the solvers.
We know how to leverage data and machine learning, we know how to operate, and we’ve got access to capital. And we’ll use those resources to help lots of entrepreneurs, build lots of things, that solve lots of hard problems.
