What We Face

Disrupting Incentives in Human Trafficking Systems


Human trafficking has been a problem for centuries, the fullest and most extreme illustration of how the prospect of monetary gain can corrode all moral restraint. Put simply, the financial rewards outweigh the risks for those who build and perpetuate these evil and sophisticated systems that oppress mostly women and girls in vulnerable situations around the world.

We're interested in ventures taking creative and often aggressive approaches to reshape supply and demand economics as well as legal and reputational consequences, making it difficult for financially motivated actors and their customers to consider participation in trafficking as viable.
