The NoRegrets Portfolio

Through our portfolio, we invest in making things more complex, because complexity is beautiful. To achieve our mission, we must invest in the people and solutions that are addressing the root causes of the problem. We like to ask, “in the system and/or community, is this project/business needed? Is it game changing? Do we think it’s awesome?"

Explore the NRI portfolio of grantees and investees and learn more by clicking on each company/organization.

*Please note that this list is organized by the state in which the organization is headquartered. We recognize that many of these organizations serve communities regionally, nationally or even internationally, so we have noted that next to their name.
