Dedicated to Building a More Humane and Healthy Planet

Driven by the urgency of today’s societal and environmental challenges, we at Builders Vision support changemakers and innovators working to build a better future.

We passionately invest in the builders.

The entre¬≠pre¬≠neurs, inno¬≠va¬≠tors, and com¬≠mu¬≠ni¬≠ty lead¬≠ers on the ground make change hap¬≠pen. These builders are at the cen¬≠ter of our vision, and we offer a range of phil¬≠an¬≠thropic and impact invest¬≠ing tools to seed and scale inno¬≠v¬≠a¬≠tive solu¬≠tions in four key impact areas: Food and Agri¬≠cul¬≠ture, Cli¬≠mate and Ener¬≠gy, Oceans, and Community.
