FII Institute started in 2017 as an annual event bringing people together to invest in the most promising technologies. Since then, we’ve become so much more.

We realized that this energy of catalyzing ideas into actions with a global human impact should happen more than once a year. We need ongoing, sustained action.
FII Institute has expanded its scope to become a fully-fledged, high-impact non-profit global foundation, with a single, pressing agenda: positive Impact on Humanity.

ESG as a guiding principle

We at FII Institute have ESG deeply embedded in the fiber of our identity. These principles not only provide the framework for our own institution, but also inform our decisions to invest in companies that are offering exciting solutions to one of humanity’s pressing issues. We don’t just look at the solution, we look at the big picture of the company through an ESG lens. Companies with healthy ESG scores not only perform better financially, they are able to weather the storms of change. They have longevity and stability so that they can keep delivering their valuable products and services to humanity uninterrupted. 

E is for Environment:
Energy and resources efficiency, and minimizing impact it has on the planet.
S for Social
The relationship a company has with people, partners and communities.
G for Governance
Aligning corporate decisions with values, guidelines and laws.
