Assist great entrepreneurs developing products and services for the three billion people at the bottom of the world’s economic pyramid.
We invest in world-class entrepreneurs who are passionate about solving challenging, often intractable socio-economic problems through careful application of science, technology, and design or through creative business models. We believe in experimentation and encourage this approach among our entrepreneurs.
We evaluate a wide range of opportunities but are primarily focused on for-profit enterprises serving people at the bottom half of the world’s economic pyramid: low-income laborers, farmers and families, as well as small businesses in emerging markets.
Given our experience, South Asia is our initial, but not exclusive, geography of focus. We welcome entrepreneurs and business plans from all countries and regions.
