The Wheeler Institute for Business and Development (Wheeler Institute) is our response to the world’s most urgent economic and social problems.
The Institute is named for Tony and Maureen Wheeler, who donated £10 million to fund the Institute's work in January 2018.
"Maureen and I have been passionate supporters of international development efforts for many years and firmly believe that business has a central role to play in this journey. We are grateful to be part of the Institute’s long-term efforts to alleviate poverty in those regions most in need."
