London, UK

Sector agnostic

We grow high potential small businesses in Kenya and Uganda. This creates safe, secure and fairly paid work where it’s needed most.

By combining investment with highly efficient business support, we challenge conventional investor logic and make previously unviable investments, viable.

Through this journey, we deploy our Good Jobs Framework to create safe, secure and fairly paid work that moves entire families out of poverty.

Our approach

$5,000 to $50,000 of investment + 300 hours of Growth Support = thriving SMEs providing good quality jobs

Invest

We invest $5,000 to $50,000 in small and growing businesses from poverty reducing sectors that have the potential to create lots of good jobs.

Partner

We partner with investees to introduce systems, technology and behaviours that build good management practices and good jobs. 

Scale

We scale investees, reinvesting in the best performers, and supporting them through every stage of growth. We learn what works and replicate.
