Mozilla was built to make
the internet better
A message from Eric Muhlheim & Angela Plohman
At Mozilla, we have big ambitions for the future, we want to build impactful products that are different — that are built with more respect for the people using them and help us explore new forms of openness. It’s going to take hard work that Mozilla is uniquely suited to take on. It’s why we’re here. It’s who we are. And it’s our future.
Why I build
Building Mozilla stems from a harmonious blend of philanthropic vision and commercial acumen, embodying the balance between social impact and sustainable growth. Driven by the mission to serve the public good. Two examples are how we build through our Venture Fund and the amazing projects funded through In Real Life.
Mozilla Ventures, the impact fund from Mozilla, symbolizes our strategic commitment to investing in and supporting startups that resonate with our core values, as outlined in the Mozilla Manifesto. This initiative is designed to cultivate a generation of tech companies that value public benefit as much as profit, contributing to a healthier internet ecosystem.
Mozilla's Africa Innovation Mradi’s 'In Real Life Fund' (IRL Fund) is a transformative initiative aimed at advancing digital and human rights in Africa, with a focus on Eastern and Southern Africa. The inaugural cohort of the IRL Fund, announced on Africa Day in 2023, includes a diverse range of projects. These projects range from creating virtual support networks for LGBTQI+ individuals to programs aimed at equipping women with digital skills.
