Social Entrepreneurs
Driving Large Scale

The Skoll Foundation drives large-scale change by investing in, connecting, and celebrating social entrepreneurs and the innovators who help them solve the world’s most pressing problems.


We identify people and organizations with innovations creating scalable positive impact. We invest at their inflection point towards scale, our bet that these social entrepreneurs have charted a path to fundamentally transform unjust systems.


Social Entrepreneurship is a team sport. We believe that change agents thrive in a well cultivated community of their peers. Scalable solutions to the world’s most pressing problems require innovative partnerships.


We believe a story well told can change the world. Through our Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, we have supported 135 social entrepreneurs and 111 organizations on five continents. Their stories show the world what is possible.
