We invest in companies that generate both positive societal impact and attractive financial returns.
Our investees have proven, scalable business models that address the basic needs of low to lower-middle income consumers in developing and emerging countries. By providing access to products, services and opportunities in one of our focus sectors, our portfolio companies share our mission of empowering underserved people and contributing to prosperous ecosystems and communities.
We strive to realize the full potential of our portfolio companies. Especially during critical early expansion stages it takes the right investment at the right time to reach the next level.
