We are ardent believers in the power of technology to drive a global culture of genuine human flourishing, meeting the current and future needs of all people.
We want our investments to accelerate this flourishing.
That’s why we are constantly working to inform and advance our thought-leadership in technology investing.
We do so by actively engaging global leaders, experts, policy-makers, businesspeople, academics, artists, and faith leaders through our participation in select global initiatives exploring technology’s impact on the future of the world.
Kluz Prize for PeaceTech
The application of frontier technologies has speedy, broad, and impactful effects these days.
From preventing military conflicts and disinformation, connecting people, facilitating dialogue, drone delivery of humanitarian aid, and solving water access conflicts, to satellite imagery to monitor human rights violations and monitor peacekeeping efforts; technology has demonstrated its place in PeaceTech.
Our Kluz Prize for PeaceTech is a unique global initiative for distinguished achievements in peacebuilding, peacemaking, peacekeeping, and peace enforcement efforts through the application of new technologies by individuals, organizations or initiatives.
The goal of the Prize is to engage individuals, societies, and states in building up a local, national, and global PeaceTech movement. Founded in 2022.
The Art of Negozio
The Art of Negozio at The Medici Archive Project in Florence is a leading initiative focused on the research and application of the Medici family and the Renaissance concept of negozio; and translating them into a cogent contemporary compass.
The project envisions becoming the catalyst for a new generation of global leaders, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists to focus on and contribute to human flourishing.
We are trying to understand the reason, logic, and synergies between the two superpowers: the Renaissance and the current Technological Revolution, which began in Silicon Valley in the 20th century.
We are also trying to address some of the crucial questions: What was the impact of technology on Renaissance splendor, leadership, discovery, politics, finance, and society? What were the benchmarks of leadership, success, and wealth? What lessons can be learned from the Renaissance, Machiavelli, Medici (and non-Medici) experience?
Finally, we explored an unanswerable question today; who are our global leaders of tomorrow? Technologists? Venture capitalists? Entrepreneurs? Or maybe philosophers who understand man and his dignity? The project will produce various research papers, workshops, and a book. Founded in 2022.
