Towards a more
inclusive future

The 85 world

85% of the world lives in Africa, Asia, and Latin America but receives only 15% of the attention. We advocate for solutions that prioritize the most underserved populations in these markets.

inclusive growth?


We believe in the power of convening people to find and scale solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
