OUR PHILOSOPHY: At RENEW, we focus on opportunities in developing nations rather than on problems. We focus on investing rather than providing handouts. We find promising businesses, connect them to investors around the world and grow them into world-class companies. We do this because we believe that many growing businesses together create the engine that lifts entire nations out of poverty.
- We believe that economic growth solves many of the problems that people see in developing countries, and therefore it should be the world’s focus.
- We believe that businesses are the engines of economic development, and that dollar-for-dollar investing in them will create a greater, longer-term, sustainable impact than charity.
- We believe many of these businesses are attractive investments and if investors had a simple and clear path that allowed them to invest in them — they would.
- We believe it is time for the West to change its development strategy, and begin investing in developing countries.
- We believe you can and should do well by doing good. And with this incentive both investors and entrepreneurs ignite the change that developing countries need.
