Unlocking the Potential of Entrepreneurs

Our work unlocks the potential of local communities and creates a ripple effect on employment, household incomes, supply chain purchases and beyond.

In 2019 with the support of our corporate partners, we saw our investments have a catalytic effect in the communities in which we serve. These investments are helping entrepreneurs grow, mature, and scale their solutions into the future.

Our investments supported 703 small businesses which generated $55M in revenue, a 45% annual increase. These businesses supported 2,776 jobs and helped communities earn $9.6M USD in household income, a 51% increase from 2018. With our partners, we also supported 230 women-led businesses and helped launch 85 social and environmental innovations.
