What’s at Stake
Consumer Internet and mobile technologies provide the most efficient way for people around the world to communicate, transact, and connect with each other around shared interests. These technologies enable people to create, share, and locate personally relevant information with greater ease and control than ever before.
The rapid innovation in these sectors offers extraordinary opportunity for positive social impact. With the ability to engage people in diverse and even remote locations, consumer Internet and mobile technologies are expanding the concept of community as they shrink geographic boundaries. They are providing new possibilities for creating transparency, accountability, and trust across media, markets, and government.
We invest in innovative consumer Internet and mobile technology companies. We prefer those that enable meaningful peer-to-peer interaction, provide efficient access to products and services, and facilitate creation, discovery, and distribution of trustworthy information. Drawing on our eBay experience, we are uniquely positioned to leverage technology to help organizations align incentives, form passionate communities, and build trust.
Enhance individuals’ quality of life by enabling them to connect with others, make more informed decisions, access products and services efficiently, and take action on what matters to them.
