Connect to Grow is a first-of-its kind enterprise matchmaking initiative, designed to help ambitious enterprises grow!
It does this by creating partnerships between Indian enterprises and enterprises across South Asia and Africa, to improve people’s health and agricultural prospects.
We match enterprises in India with enterprises in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia for profitable and socially beneficial partnerships
We help partnerships to develop their proposition, agree a suitable partnership agreement and implement a well designed partnership venture
We support partners in accessing finance and creating a plan to scale the venture. In turn, both enterprises grow through partnership resulting in increased profitability and social impact
