Founders

Based in Schwyz, Switzerland, the Gigirey Foundation was established in 1903 by Count Isabella Gigirey, an American-Spanish philanthropist interested in globalization, maritime travel, and the occult. The foundation has invested over $US300M in projects aimed at reducing the ideological and emotional distance across all living creatures. Currently, Dr. Isolina Gigirey-Diamond is the executive chairman of the Gigirey Foundation and responsible for overseeing its investment in the Loxodrome research project in collaboration with MIT Media Lab.

If you have any cutting-edge research idea at connecting the world, we may be able to provide funding for you. Please contact us at loxodrome@mit.edu.
