As the largest broad-based healthcare company in the world, Johnson & Johnson has an important and unique role to play in fueling innovation in human health. J&J Impact Ventures is uniquely positioned to harness Johnson & Johnson’s network, knowledge and expertise to help companies overcome structural barriers and scale as well as to draw on an array of traditional philanthropic tools and innovative market-based approaches such as impact investing.

No one company can solve complex public health challenges alone; J&J Impact Ventures, with its broader platform for innovative finance, aims to galvanize necessary private funding towards bridging the health gap at scale. By supporting social enterprises, we are able to improve healthcare in communities around the world where markets fail and governments alone are unable to meet the need.

At PwC, our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. We’re a network of firms in 156 countries with over 295,000 people who are committed to delivering quality in assurance, advisory, and tax services.

Committed to delivering sustained outcomes, our Asia Pacific Centre for Sustainability Excellence focuses on supporting organisations in areas such as decarbonisation, climate risk, sustainable finance, responsible investment, nature-based solutions, sustainability reporting and assurance, ESG upskilling, and capability-building for the ecosystem.

Together as a firm, we believe in using our scale and resources to support the essential needs social enterprises are providing for underserved communities and addressing some of the biggest systemic societal challenges to help others thrive. Leading with trust, transparency, and purpose, we are committed to helping to bridge the growing gap between those who have access to opportunity, and those who do not.
