Seed entrepreneurs meeting with De Beers

Collaborate with Seed

Collaborate with Seed. Multiply the impact.

At Seed we rely on collaborators to help achieve our mission — we realize our vision is not one that can be reached alone. From entrepreneurs in emerging economies to Stanford faculty, students, and seasoned executives, we know that something this ambitious requires many hearts and minds.

Seed collaborates in a variety of ways – strategically, programatically, and financially. Here are some of our key collaborations.
