“We invest in social entrepreneurs who change the world”
William H. Draper, III and Robin Richards Donohoe began investing together in the venture industry in 1994 concentrating on building companies in India.  Since 1994, they have invested in over one hundred early stage information technology investments both in India and the United States. In 2010, the Foundation joined forces with Robert S. Kaplan, formerly vice-chairman of Goldman Sachs and currently professor of leadership at Harvard Business School. Together the team raised their second fund, The SpringStep Venture Fund, inviting fourteen innovative philanthropists to join the fund.
