ACCESS STRATEGY

We employ a three-pillar framework to give enterprises of all sizes access to what they need to grow and thrive in today’s competitive global economy.

Access to Finance

We develop partnerships with equity funds and Joint Venture Capitalists (JVCs) with the goal of creating job opportunities for entrepreneurs and providing them with adequate financing to support their businesses. We focus on sectors and enterprises with the best potential for high growth and job creation.

Access to Business Development Services (BDS)

Access to capital alone is not enough for the success of business enterprises. Financing needs to be accompanied by Business Development Services (BDS) that provide companies with the knowledge and tools they need to compete. Through our world-class consulting services, we provide Business Development Services to enterprises.

Access to Markets

Access to finance and BDS are essential, but without access to local and regional markets, the growth potential of SMEs and large companies is constrained to their domestic markets. To help give our clients access to the wider markets they need for long-term growth and expansion, we offer a variety of innovative solutions that facilitates access to trade as well as junior capital markets.
