Okay, sure. The Schmidt Futures was only founded in 2017, so it’s a relatively new organization. It’s largely divided between Talent Engine and Talent Ventures. On the Talent Engine side is sort of where we have these more traditional networking-based talents that we invest in. So, like our fellows in the ISF as well as the Quad Fellowship, as well as RISE, which is for young and emerging teenagers, basically high schoolers who are going to go on to do amazing things. And then on the other side with Talent Ventures that’s the more sort of time bound, problem bound venture that we fund. So, these include, for example, AI or synthetic biology and other issues within STEM that don’t necessarily touch on critical technology, but touch on the more traditional STEM topics.
