Philanthropy

Just as investments in people and ideas have enabled Spectrum Business Ventures to achieve great success, Amit Raizada and the firm believe in investing in people and institutions that enrich our communities.

We support ideas that change the world for the better, enabling a more vibrant future.

Today SBV supports organizations focused on the issues that impact the health and well-being of our communities, educational initiatives and innovative use of technology.
