about

Standing in solidarity.

Founded in East Africa – with work in 31 countries so far – we see firsthand the support gaps nonprofits and social enterprises face.

Three of our co-founders are based in the Global South, one in the Global North. We hail from the private sector, we’re embedded in the social sector, we’re a nonprofit/B Corp hybrid. We’ve guided 100+ organizations using our pragmatic models and tools. And our leadership team has started, run, or turned around six businesses. So we’re no stranger to growth-stage realities.

LEADERSHIP

At the helm.
