The Annika Linden Centre was imagined and initial capital was provided by the leadership of the Inspirasia Foundation, who with more than a decade and US$12 million in grantmaking experience in Asia, imagined a place in Southeast Asia that would support and mentor outstanding, high potential local non profit leaders with knowledge, training, and infrastructure to develop quality services for the poor and grow solutions to problems of poverty.
Built on the principle of better business through philanthropy, and better philanthropy through business, Inspirasia invests long term cash grants alongside training and expert support for maximum impact. As a commitment to its 'more than money' philosophy in philanthropy, Inspirasia invested in the Annika Linden Centre.
Inspirasia's investment in the Annika Linden Centre as a business was led by Inspirasia's Founder & Chairman Mark Weingard, a successful serial entrepreneur and investor.
