ABOUT RENEW

Let's Move from Giving to Investing

RENEW was founded on a simple idea: that Africa’s future lies in its local private sector. We have a vision to build the most successful small and medium enterprise (SME) investment firm in Africa. Today, RENEW is one of the most active SME investment firms in East Africa, and we're just getting started. We partner with investors to turn SMEs into market leaders. We work with the development community to build vibrant private sector ecosystems that foster SME growth. We care about generating returns, creating good jobs, empowering women and building prosperous nations. Ultimately, we believe it's the local private sector's job to do much of the work that charity is funding...and we're seeing it happen across our portfolio.
