Founding Donors

Seed was launched with an extraordinary gift from Stanford GSB alumnus Robert King and his wife, Dorothy.

A shared vision was developed with Stanford to launch an institute that would:

  • Identify and train established entrepreneurs in developing economies, resulting in increased job creation.
  • Inspire Stanford students to become more globally engaged leaders.
  • Support critical research focused on poverty alleviation.
