Zinc exists to build and scale a brand-new way to solve the world's most important societal problems by empowering the most talented and motivated people to redirect their careers and have a large-scale social impact as entrepreneurs, researchers and intrapreneurs.
Since launching in 2017, Zinc have been developing a unique ecosystem of diverse talent across many sectors, disciplines and countries by mobilising people around a common mission and building scaleable solutions to social problems.
They focus on specific ‘missions’, which they believe unite, mobilise and organise the best talent, knowledge and capital that are needed to break through at scale. Within each of their missions (Environment, Later Life, Mental Health, Globalisation & Automation), they run Venture Builder and Accelerate programmes that help individuals to have impact.
