Through the generosity of founding donors, we have established a matching fund to encourage partner investors to fuel Seed’s mission. Donor partners have the opportunity to make a gift to support Seed’s Transformation Program, student initiatives, faculty leadership, and research by Stanford GSB and university faculty in multidisciplinary efforts addressing significant issues in global development and poverty.
Seed 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.
