Where do you invest?

We've identified seven spaces that will impact our fight towards better access to health, hygiene and nutrition, but we're always open to discovering more.

At what stage do you invest?

We invest from seed stage through to Series A and B, and have two methods for investing. First, through our accelerator for early-stage businesses, powered by Founders Factory. Second, through our investment fund for later-stage businesses and follow-on investments.
