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.
At the helm.
CO-FOUNDER & CEO
Kevin is a master at driving businesses and growing brands. His roots are in the advertising agency world as a strategy, ops, and marketing leader. Then a passion for the orphan crisis led to living in Uganda and South Africa. He’s started firms and guided organizations ranging from fintech start-ups to Apple, and LIVESTRONG to Impact Hub. He’s our visionary and data aficionado. Kevin is an Acumen Fellow and advisor for Roddenberry Foundation.
Kathleen is an experienced strategist, adept in working at the intersection of diagnostics, creativity, and business ops. She’s worked for large marketing agencies like FleishmanHillard with big brands including Nestle and Saudi Aramco. And personally engaged with small nonprofits like Dismas House. Kathleen is as proficient in the boardrooms of Fortune 50 corporations as she is conducting field interviews in far-flung locales.
CO-FOUNDER | MIGHTY ALLY INSTITUTE
Evan has deep brand expertise heading marketing and comms at various organizations. For the past six years, she’s directly supported early-stage entrepreneurs. Evan is passionate about ensuring African social ventures are seen and heard. Which led to launching Mighty Ally Institute – a nonprofit training institute that equips African-led, early-stage social ventures for growth through brand workshops, tools, and coaching.

For tactical execution after we’ve led strategy, we engage our global partners in creative, digital, PR, fundraising, and sales enablement. We work with them on a low-bono basis to produce assets without any additional management burden on our clients.
“Mighty Ally was dedicated to our success rather than being one-step-removed consultants. They rolled up their sleeves and provided insights that continue to guide us every single day.”
