Connect to Grow

Supporting enterprise growth through innovation and partnership

Connect to Grow is a programme trying to create long-term, commercial partnerships between African & south Asian enterprises who have spotted a market opportunity (either to do something new or to do something better), and Indian enterprises who have an innovation which might help exploit that market opportunity, and who are looking to enter an international market. We will support both enterprises to develop a relationship and set out a plan, with clear steps, about what a partnership might look like. We can provide bespoke technical assistance and funding to help the partners implement a pilot to test the market potential for whatever the venture is. We will then help the venture / partnership access follow on finance to scale up, where feasible.  Connect to Grow is not a grant giving programme, nor a challenge fund. It is an opportunity for enterprises to scope out growth through partnership.
