The Team

Our Vision

We are on a mission to increase the flow of capital and reduce the costs of financing in developing markets by building infrastructure and a platform that reduce frictions in investing and funding in such markets. By enabling relationships, increasing transparency, reducing time and effort to make deals and providing secondary markets we believe that we can make high yielding development projects more accessible to international investors. 

Our theory is that this will enable more projects to be financed which will support growth and social and environmental impact in these markets.
