We were born many years ago, in 1985, and invested almost thirty years in the research of rare and re-emerging infectious diseases. Today, we have changed our mission: we carry out initiatives with high capacity to transform society.
The Carlo Denegri Foundation wishes to draw inspiration from the essence of philanthropy in its most traditional term, evolving it through entrepreneurial skills, financial capital, technologies and connections to sectors, such as impact investing and venture philanthropy.
We invest in projects with a strong social and environmental impact, simultaneously contributing to the creation of financial returns. We are referring to investments in new-generation companies, organizations and funds in which the players invest pursuing social and financial goals.
We invest risk capital and material skills in entrepreneurial activities that finance innovative solutions to social and environmental problems. Our goal is to understand how to support entrepreneurial solutions that ensure the feasibility, effectiveness and sustainability of a project in the long term.
