Find the best entrepreneurs in frontier markets

Every nation has a few game-changing entrepreneurs who create outsized value. We select the highest character, highest competency management teams leading the most scalable ventures.

Connect them to Silicon Valley Resources

Even the best entrepreneurs in frontier markets lack access to the resources they need to scale. We match them with talent, networks, expertise, and investments from the world’s most prolific entrepreneurial ecosystem - Silicon Valley.

Create impact at scale

Our ventures scale-up to create thousands of new jobs and deliver essential products and services to millions of people. Our entrepreneurs become role-models who lead the transformation of their own national ecosystems.

Where we work

Born out of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, we live and work where Silicon Valley meets the frontier
