ACT is a non-profit venture philanthropy platform that was born in 2020 in response to the COVID crisis and is built upon the premise that collective action has the power to achieve social impact at scale.

We’re driven by the desire to catalyse social change through action and collaboration across the board – start-up founders, donors, NGO’s, expert advisors, government stakeholders as well as the public at large.

Our grants are given as seed capital to incubate and accelerate innovations that have demonstrated ability to address identified social need gaps at scale. In addition to providing funding, we work with our grantees on their strategy as well as operations and help them harness the strength of our collective to make sure they have access to the best-in-class mentorship the industry has to offer.
