The Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership is a social business builder that brings entrepreneurial solutions to global poverty. We build from scratch, invest start-up capital, and manage agribusinesses that work with smallholder farmers and fishers. We work to improve their livelihoods by providing the tools they need – from training and financing to technology and innovation – and connecting them to markets where they can prosper.
By building our own businesses from scratch, using a market-driven approach working with large companies, with value-added support from an expert central team, we are able to eliminate many of the risks and barriers that prevent social businesses focused on economic development from being successful. Our experience as business builders across multiple countries allows us to replicate the model in new geographies to increase our impact.
Having built and invested start-up capital in our first round of agribusinesses, we are bringing to the impact investment market several profitable investment grade to early stage high impact investment opportunities. We also are working on the next stage of replicating agribusinesses in new geographies.
