Global Good is a collaborative effort between Bill Gates and Intellectual Ventures to address this. The organization takes on some of humanity’s toughest problems through the power of invention by drawing on resources normally reserved for commercial pursuits in the developed world.


Global Good combines IV’s unique invention prowess with the expertise of leading humanitarian organizations, forward-looking governments, and commercial partners that share our vision. Together, we invent, develop, and deploy commercially-viable technologies that improve life in developing countries. View our walking deck to learn more about Global Good.
