McCourt Global
McCourt Global Inc Founded and led by civic entrepreneur and philanthropist, Frank McCourt, McCourt Global, Inc. (MGI) is a diversified asset management and impact investment firm with interests spanning the finance, media, sports, technology, and real estate industries. Building on an approach that began when the McCourt family launched its first business in 1893, MGI is committed to redefining value by integrating financial results and social impact. The finance business includes MGG Investment Group, a specialty finance firm and direct lender; and Partners, a private investment platform with more than $1 billion in permanent capital. MGI owns the iconic French football club Olympique de Marseille and is a co-owner of Global Champions, the world’s most celebrated equestrian showjumping league and tour. The company’s key real estate initiatives include projects in London, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York City. MGI’s technology efforts, led by its in-house team of leading technologists, are focused on introducing and driving adoption to a more equitable web architecture. MGI’s philanthropic endeavors include its foundational support of Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy and The Shed at Hudson Yards in New York City. In 2020, the company’s commitment to social impact inspired the launch of Unfinished, an initiative to strengthen civic life in the digital age by redirecting technology, especially social media, to fuel collaboration over division; renewing and strengthening civic institutions to accelerate inclusive problem-solving; and growing a fairer economy. MGI is also the driving force behind Project Liberty, which aims to transform the internet through a new, equitable technology infrastructure and rebuild social media in a way that enables users to own and control their personal data. The project includes the creation of the McCourt Institute, with founding partners Sciences Po in Paris and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., to advance research and develop a governance model for the internet’s next era; and the development of a groundbreaking, open-source internet protocol called the Decentralized Social Networking Protocol (DSNP), which will be gifted to the public to serve as a new web infrastructure.
