We are passionate about creating, developing and scaling the native capacity of the private sector to achieve sustainable economic growth in emerging markets. We know this cannot be achieved by investment or innovation alone. Empowering people with the skills and knowledge to create prosperity and vibrant economies in their countries requires cooperation and shared vision among a disparate set of actors. We fervently believe that the public and private sectors must work together to apply innovation at scale to foster positive social impact and lasting development gains in order to solve challenges around financial inclusion, SME investment, competitiveness climate change, food security, healthcare, access to education and sustainable energy.

Nicole Reynolds
Founder and Managing Partner

Intellectually curious and a little restless by nature, Nicole has a knack for taking concepts that at first seem completely unrelated and connecting the dots to find a solution to any problem. She possesses a strong command of minutiae and attention to detail that can put a process around big ideas to draw a roadmap for implementation from the white board to the marketplace. As a veteran of Wall Street, Big Media and global development, she has worked on solving business problems from a variety of perspectives for more than 20 years.
