We equip and agrarian and craft-based entrepreneurs in Asia who are committed to restoring rural, vulnerable communities through redemptive venture creation.
Equipping ENTREPRENEURS IN rural ASIA
Rural and semi-urban regions of Southeast Asia are home to most of Asia’s poor, and the majority work in agriculture or agro-based handicraft production. Yet jobs within these sectors are constantly at risk of elimination, leading to cycles of poverty and mass migration. We equip entrepreneurs in these environments with the resources they need to create stable, sustainable jobs within their communities.
RESTORING RURAL, VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES
Entrepreneurs operating in vulnerable communities face incredible obstacles yet are under-resourced. Through our Venture Labs, Accelerator Program, and Maker's Space, we partner with indigenous leaders to create successful businesses built to last. We focus on innovation—both in the way we create and develop products, and in the way we tackle the major societal challenges our partners face.
Cultivating REDEMPTIVE VENTURE CREATION
We partner with redemptive entrepreneurs who live and work alongside the people they employ and who have a justice-based strategy for transforming their communities. This proximity affords each of them a deeper understanding of their community's unique strengths, challenges, and needs, and it enables them to model holistic health.
