Scaling global change-makers with purposeful capital
While we believe it's important to celebrate the best, we don't believe the impact should stop there. That’s why in 2017, we launched Design to Improve Life Capital Management – a multi-stage micro-VC fund that invests in The Index Award pipeline, an ever-growing source of impactful solutions, regardless of winning status.
The Design to Improve Life (DtIL) Funds offer investment opportunities via our own investment entity alongside vetted co-investors to provide financial support and awareness to bold ideas and impactful designs. So far, we’ve launched two funds and invested in 18 companies such as Zipline, what3words and Seaborg Technologies.
