WE INVEST IN INTREPID ENTREPRENEURS AND EARLY STAGE INNOVATORS

TACKLING THE PROBLEMS OF POVERTY

PARTNERING WITH Unity For Equality

The markets alone cannot solve the problems of poverty; nor are charity and aid enough to tackle the challenges faced by over two-thirds of the world’s population living in poverty. Patient capital is a third way that seeks to bridge the gap between the efficiency and scale of market-based approaches and the social impact of pure philanthropy.
