Built upon the innovation, excitement, thought leadership and entrepreneurship of the Property Rights initiative at the Omidyar Network, PlaceFund is a venture fund that invests in non-profit organizations advocating for secure property rights, positive climate outcomes, and sustainable land use. They bring with them lessons learned from a decade of experience driving sectoral change, with $30MM in assets under management that includes social enterprises, geospatial platforms, think tanks, academia, NGOs, and the media.
PlaceFund serves as an effective bridge between solution providers and funders that want to contribute to driving positive impact but are not structured to reach and support local organizations in emerging markets.
They source their portfolio through our global network, partnerships, and challenge programs. True to their Silicon Valley Impact Investing heritage, they then provide the financial, human, and technological resources that enable beneficiaries to accomplish their missions and reach their fullest potential.
