    Description:

    Omidyar Network is a mission-based investment group committed to fostering individual self-empowerment on a global scale. Established in June 2004 by Pierre and Pam Omidyar, the Network derives its focus and values from Pierre's experience as founder of eBay. Omidyar's efforts are organized around two investment initiatives-Access to Capital; and Media, Markets and Transparency. Through the first, Access to Capital, the Network works to create economic opportunity for people in emerging markets. By opening new doors to financial services and property rights, Omidyar's helping to foster entrepreneurial behavior, economic activity, and job creation. Specifically, the Network focuses on: Microfinance-extending access to high-quality, affordable financial services to the poor; Small-to-medium enterprise (SME)-fueling growth in small-to-medium enterprises by supporting the financial services and other infrastructure that serve them; Emerging market ventures-investing in high-growth entrepreneurs that provide low-cost products and services to underserved populations; and Property rights-promoting security, identity, and wealth by helping people establish and formalize property rights. Omidyar looks to make investments greater than $1 million.
