Connecting people to opportunity beyond borders the global economy better jobs better pay a brighter future through education


We believe that education is the surest pathway to economic opportunity. Through ‘Opportunity Beyond Borders’ we collaborate with nonprofits around the world to empower forcibly displaced and marginalized youth with the training and education needed to succeed in today’s technology-driven global economy. We also provide funding to communities in crisis through disaster relief and other humanitarian efforts – a key reason for forced migration.

Who We Help

By 2022, we will invest $15 million with a focus on providing technology-driven skills training to forcibly displaced and marginalized youth across five continents.

Investing in refugees means investing in the next generation of business leaders, innovators, educators, and entrepreneurs.
