Our Impact Stories
Designing Technology for Environmental Resilience
It takes initiative and drive to build sustainable solutions to challenging problems. We harness that drive, supporting projects that can become viable businesses and improve people’s lives.
Our support has helped scale Good Machine, a venture studio finding ingenious new ways to apply technology to support environmental and climate resilience. With our support, Good Machine is replanting coral reefs—home to one quarter of all life in the ocean—up to 100 times faster than human divers, helping to ensure that these vital ecosystems can adapt and thrive.
Improving Organ Donation to Save Thousands of Lives
Innovation and entrepreneurship drive change when confronting longstanding, entrenched challenges. Griffin Catalyst works with partners to identify acute problems and advance novel solutions to improve people’s lives.
Griffin Catalyst’s support for the Organs Initiative, a broad coalition with bipartisan support, enabled the leveraging of data to achieve breakthroughs in overhauling America’s outdated and inefficient organ donation system. These reforms are expected to save over 7,000 lives a year.
