Data & Technology
Leveraging potential of data & rapidly developing technologies for transformative solutions
The Rockefeller Foundation aims to help data & technology become more useful tools for those seeking to address the big challenges of our time. Based on our insight into the root causes of these challenges and our trusted relationships with government, the private sector, and civil society, we are well-positioned to partner with innovative thinkers to develop and scale technologies to achieve breakthrough results. We also believe in the enormous potential of data and will invest in developing data-based techniques and data sets to help realize significantly more impact.
