The Thomas Foundation supports a variety of social enterprises that address complex challenges in a creative yet practical manner. We support projects and innovations that benefit entire communities in quantifiable ways, set a positive example, and reward individuals for their initiative. The Thomas Foundation’s support for entrepreneurship includes:
- Social Enterprises – Harnessing the power of social enterprise can enable individuals to develop creative solutions that advance the interests of entire communities.
- Small Firms and Microenterprises – Some of the most vulnerable communities in the world demonstrate impressive entrepreneurial inventiveness and energy, but lack support to advance to the next stage. Breaking financial barriers and expanding access to markets can catalyze a transformative process across entire countries and regions.
