Working Capital is an early stage venture fund that invests in scalable innovations to meet the growing corporate demand for more transparent and ethical supply chains—addressing the urgent need to protect vulnerable workers and source responsibly. It was created by Humanity United, part of The Omidyar Group, a diverse collection of organizations, each guided by its own approach, but united by a common desire to catalyze social impact.
We work alongside innovative entrepreneurs and like-minded investors to redefine global corporate supply chains. Our investment focus includes worker engagement platforms, product traceability, and risk assessment.
