New Ventures

Social Entrepreneurs at Heart.

Maendeleo Ventures also acts as an umbrella legal entity from which to incubate and launch new ventures.

We put our money where our mouth is. Past advisory and consulting engagements have often led to the launch of new ventures. Maendeleo Ventures has partnered with previous clients and colleagues to help launch new ventures where the opportunity is strong. For example, a USTDA funded Technical Assistance to the Ghana Association of Leasing Companies (GALCO) helped identify technologies that could be successfully leased to small farmers. This work identified an amazing opportunity to improve small-land holders’ lots with greenhouse kits that could steady out their production and improve yields, eventually leading to the beginning of a new venture – Maendeleo Agric.

Maendeleo Ventures has real, on-the-ground experience running, raising funding and establishing companies in various environments and legal systems. When you work with Maendeleo, you get very real, practical experience.

Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing.
