  • Companies must have at least a two (2) year operating track record and be involved in a business sector that is not under embargo as published and amended from time to time by the United Nations or European Union
  • Socially and environmentally responsible enterprise that drives job creation and has a compelling business model

Funding Range

  • Funding to date has ranged between USD $5,000 to USD $750,000, based on the strength of the proposal. Promising investments requiring greater amounts of capital will be considered. We do not provide finance for working capital.
