One of RENEW's core beliefs is that a thriving private sector made up of robust small- to medium- sized enterprises (SMEs) is the engine of a thriving economy. Since 2013, when RENEW 's Impact Angel Network (IAN) first invested in an Ethiopian SME, the network’s portfolio has grown by six incredible companies across seven additional investments. We believe that investing in these high-growth and high potential companies, and others like them, will create the stepping-stones that lift emerging economies out of poverty.

To celebrate these successes, we've created a short video that tells part of the story of each company in the IAN’s portfolio. Celebrate with RENEW, the IAN and the entrepreneurs behind these growing companies by watching their stories unfold. And be sure to stay tuned until the end - we have some great tidbits you will not want to miss!
