Who we are
“We need both the Public & the Private Web to ensure the Internet remains a powerful place for real human connections.”
– Wickr Foundation
Wickr Foundation is a non-profit venture fund with a global mission to advance the Private Web and transform how society uses the Internet. In addition to educating the public on privacy and information security, Wickr Foundation is focused on incubating and investing in ideas that revolutionize user control and empower data ownership.
Investing in Innovation in User Control & Data Ownership
Wickr Foundation’s strategy is to accelerate the pace and the scale of Internet transformation by supporting entrepreneurs dedicated to empowering their users to take back the ownership and control over their data. In pursuit of our non-profit venture mission, we raise charitable donations to invest in ideas and teams that have the most potential for positive social impact.
Educating the Public on Privacy & Information Security
Wickr Foundation seeks to advance digital privacy and security by educating the public about user control and ownership. We train activists, journalists, kids, and policy-makers around the world, empowering them to make informed personal and policy decisions about the Internet. Our goal is to make hacking, a.k.a. STEM, fun and accessible to everyone.
