Idea Foundry works around the world, “enabling the enablers” within existing and growing ecosystems and investing alongside them in promising early-stage companies through both direct investments from our own capital and investment facilitation with our angel group. We most enjoy working in markets that are underutilized by mainstream venture investing.
We have found that collaboration across borders allows innovative solutions to make a more tangible impact in their respective communities. We are also actively fostering international collaboration, creating and facilitating opportunities for knowledge-sharing and development with actors across the globe.
