Jho Low is a global philanthropist who believes in investing in big ideas that have the power to transform the way in which people live. Through Jynwel Charitable Foundation, he funds break-through initiatives that scale and accelerate advancements across the pillars of global public health, conservation and education.
At the heart of Mr. Low’s social investment strategy is a phased approach to disruptive philanthropy:
Our Phased Approach
Dig Deep: Tackle the biggest issues by researching and connecting with experts until we discover and understand the root cause.
- Collaborative Design: Convene partners across sectors and around the world to design the most effective programs, driving towards cross-continental approaches and funding that brings the global North and South together.
- Think Very Long-Term: Commit for 15-30 years – or longer – to drive solutions to the most pressing problems; the world's most complex challenges cannot be solved in three to five years.
- Invest Big: Look for the greatest return on social investment; investments are successful when programs can be brought to scale globally.
- Measure to Grow: Evaluate each program every step of the way and leverage partners who can drive the most progress and impact.
