Human Capital Initiative

Connecting, Inspiring & Supporting Innovators Who Develop Social Impact Solutions


The Human Capital Initiative (HCI) is a groundbreaking initiative developed by the Impact Innovation Foundation in partnership with GatherVerse Ventures. HCI is a vibrant ecosystem of collaboration and empowerment bringing together subject matter experts, visionaries, and resources from around the world. It is within this collaborative environment that social impact startups and organizations flourish, creating innovative solutions that address pressing global challenges. Together, we embark on a journey of collective impact, fueled by the power of human capital. HCI empowers social impact startups and organizations by providing them with the essential resources, mentorship, education, and funding they need to thrive and make a lasting difference.

Meet innovators striving to impact humanity:

At IIF, collaboration is key in making an impactful and global change. No one person or organization has all of the answers. Therefore, the Human Capital Initiative has been created for two reasons:

  2. To build a HCI Innovation Fund

An Ecosystem of Collaboration & Empowerment

IIF was born out of the recognition that traditional approaches alone cannot address the complex and interconnected issues we face today. Therefore, HCI has brought on Lead Nonprofits to build a diverse and inclusive ecosystem of change-makers. By bringing together subject matter experts, visionaries, and resources from various sectors, HCI is able to foster cross-pollination of ideas and the exchange of best practices, ultimately amplifying the impact of social innovations around the world.
