Impact Sector Focus
We are specialists in the education sector. We believe that most of the world’s challenges are linked to education.
Our immersive approach to strategic advisory has enabled us to work alongside some of the largest global education companies, qualification bodies, content creators, and investors. Most of our education experience comes in the growing niche of practical and technical education. We have built networks and relationships with development finance institutions, foundations, and impact investors targeting this high-impact area.
Access to Finance for SMEs
Most of our work has been centered on SMEs in emerging markets looking for growth-capital financing. We believe that SMEs are the cornerstone to the development of emerging market economies. They constitute the largest share of employment and GDP for most developing nations. The facilitation of SME growth is at the heart of our mandate. Our founders are active in the promotion of the SME and startup ecosystem development. They have also cofounded Robu - financial technology firm that aims to support SMEs in cashflow visibility and short term liquidity.
We are interested in companies who have developed innovative processes and technologies enabling them to solve market problems more efficiently than others.
