Our Mission

To connect social entrepreneurs and innovative organizations to sources of capital, strategic partners, technology solutions and servant leaders so they are more effective at saving lives, saving money and having a sustainable impact.

What We Do...

We are an accelerator for nonprofits with big ideas. Our venture philanthropy approach mirrors how angel investors help entrepreneurs build companies that can scale effectively and reduce risk for investors and donors.

In the United States, HINRI partners with leading healthcare innovators to serve the indigent and uninsured, wounded warriors and their families, address food insecurity, create educational programs for autistic children, change the standard of care for spinal cord injuries, and combat human trafficking. Outside the U.S., HINRI is working on human rights, providing clean water, food for malnourished children, the distribution of pharmaceuticals and the creation of schools, housing, and health clinics in communities with extreme poverty.

Our Values

Commitment to

"If you are not living on the edge

you are taking up too much room."


"If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far,

go together." – African Proverb


We seek strong partners that allow us to outgrow our

ability to contribute as quickly as possible.


“There is no limit to what God can do or where he

can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit.” – Robert Woodruff


A focus on Compassion, Love, and Service

NOT brand, money or ego.
