Who We Fund

Big Bang organizations address the fundamental needs of the poor, are committed to impact at maximum scale, and have received a total of at least $100,000 from each of at least three Big Bang funders.

Organizations can be start-ups or scale-ups, for-profits or not-for-profits, but all must show real promise of impact at scale. Later stage organizations must show proof of impact; early-stage organizations must make a strong case for impact ahead and have mechanisms in place to measure it. The Big Bang list is growing as we recommend organizations to each other and as new funders join the conversation.
