SIL Our Ventures

Social Innovation Lab

 

Our Ventures



Since 2011, we have supported 72 ventures, which have earned a combined $37.5 million in funding and created more than 459 paid roles. These ventures have wide-ranging missions, from developing cutting-edge technology that revolutionize orthotics to organizing pop-up astronomy nights for urban neighborhoods.
