Financing Continues

In the last year, we have managed to close further investments across our portfolio of startups: Gjenge Makers in the summer (which allows them to double their production capacity and move into bricks for housing), ACT in the winter (which allows them to expand their activities, creating jobs, getting rid of hundred of thousands of kilos of fashion waste, and showing us all the power of circular economy). And the next in line is M-Shamba, which we will hopefully sign in the next weeks (which will allow them to reach the other half of Kenya’s counties and build digital payment options for smallholders which will help them hire harvest assistants). If we continue to go at this scale, our current generation of startups will be funded by the summer, and we can select a new generation, a process we are kicking off in March.
