Napa Valley, California, USA
Abound Napa Valley is a community of innovators, entrepreneurs and artists united by their commitment to addressing the world’s most pressing human development challenges.

Human development seeks to create an equitable, sustainable and stable world in which to thrive. Investing in people. Enhancing opportunities. Expanding choices.
The Abound community recognizes that impact comes from entrepreneurial creativity, collective engagement and strategic financial investment.
