The Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation seeks to dramatically improve the lives of people and the world around us through innovative strategies, systems changing approaches, and disrupting technologies. Our goal is to find social entrepreneurs with dynamic ideas and nurture them at the early stages with maximum leverage and total commitment.
Prospects for our portfolio of social enterprises come from a vast field of compelling ideas and dedicated leaders. We concentrate our selection on the capabilities of the founder, the scalability of the model, and the potential impact of the organization on the world.
We have an open application process and accept applications year round. We invite you to learn more about what we fund, our selection process, and to share your idea with us through our online application.
