About Us

At The Prosperity Agenda, we recognize that systemic poverty can reduce people’s choices and diminish their spirit. However, poverty doesn’t define individuals, nor limit their potential. We believe that each person has within them a reserve of skills, interests, abilities, values and hopes for self-development. We call this human capital.

We are committed to testing programs that build efficiencies and incentives into public systems, to move and keep people out of poverty, ultimately resulting in increased economic resiliency.

Using evidence-based methods to identify, test and deploy successful approaches for building human capital, we empower individuals to realize their potential for prosperity while driving the welfare ecosystem to operate efficiently and effectively at scale.
