OUR EXPERIENCE

Building a lasting business with social impact takes grit and tactical skill. Our team has decades of experience operating, financing and exiting businesses across Asia, Africa and Latin America. We bring much more to the table than just capital.

From SKS Microfinance to FastCash and many enterprises in between, we've helped grow companies that have become pioneers and market leaders.

Few investors combine this kind of global operating wisdom with policy and donor experience as well. Our many years of working in and alongside entities like the World Bank and IFC give us special insight on risk and markets.
