Digital Identity

Across the developing and developed worlds, digital identity is being recognized as a cornerstone of the 21st century economy. As a necessary prerequisite to access online banking, government benefits and many other services, there is tremendous potential for digital identity to empower people. To leverage the full potential of the digital economy, it is critical to ensure that policy and technology work towards enhancing personal data protection for individuals, meaningful consent for use of their data, and privacy.

As we build our investment portfolio in digital identity, we will invest in innovative start-ups, support research, and work on policy and technology solutions to ensure that identity systems are designed to expand economic and social inclusion for all.
