The company does not choose a specific group to benefit from the fund, and it infers that it intends to help from emerging artists to global brands, contributing to its projects based on exceptional digital experiences.

For Vijay Vachami, Creative Cloud representative, the fund will not only serve as financial support, but will provide all the necessary support for its users.

The fund not only provides financial resources, whether in investment or capital investment, but also technical support with Adobe professionals, free products, early access to new technologies and opportunities for partnerships and marketing.
