Maendeleo Ventures believes in solving the problem first

Solve the Problem

Success is not a power point. It is solving the customer’s problem.

New Thinking is Always Needed

We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.

Do Some Good.

What are you doing with your life? Has your company or non-profit made a real difference?

Abraham Kamarck founded Maendeleo Ventures in 2009 as a vehicle for change. Abe left military service just as the 2008 financial crisis began. In a tumultuous environment he saw emerging market funds that spent their last dimes on executive compensation and took over as a turn-around manager for a Bulgarian plastics factory that had been bled dry by a hedge-fund trader.

Maendeleo means “Progress” in Swahili, and that is what Maendeleo Ventures builds. Slow, determined and steady. Maendeleo Venture’s mission is to create change one project at a time.

The Maendeleo Ventures core value is “making,” as long as there are those of us out there who keep building and creating – “Makers” – then things will always get better. Even when the news is bleak and the skies are grey, in the long-run, the makers always prevail.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many people are you?

Maendeleo Ventures is just me – Abe -but I have a large network that I bring in on all my projects. I build unique teams of experts and skilled professionals for every project.

What do you do exactly?

Are you thinking about launching a new product, project or business? Do you need new funding or revenue streams? Are you interested in a new market? In these situations you can spend hundreds of thousands on a traditional consultancy to give you a power point with a bunch of bullet points about market sizes OR you can hire someone like me, who can help you structure your success and get real answers by testing, learning and repeating – all for much, much less than the cost of a consultant’s power point.
