Overview

SEED Ventures (Social, Entrepreneurship, and Equity Development), established in 2009, pioneers social impact ecosystem development and investment. Our mission is to empower social entrepreneurs and amplify traditional entrepreneurship’s social impact. Collaborating with public, development, and private sector partners, we create innovative financial mechanisms to address socio-economic challenges.

Focused on nurturing change-makers, empowering youth and women, and fostering social inclusion, we support nano-, micro-, small enterprises, and start-ups. Through four key portfolios—children, youth, women, and marginalized communities—we tailor solutions to meet diverse needs.

With research, advocacy, capacity building, innovation, market linkages, and finance access, we cultivate enabling ecosystems for sustainable social impact.

Our Mission

Create transformational change at an individual, community, institutional, and systemic level through ecosystem development and impact investment.

Individual

Individual transformation in our beneficiaries is reflected in three ways: The development of awareness and understanding through capacity development; the practical application of that new knowledge in any aspect of their lives; and consequently changes in the beneficiaries that benefit the community they live in.

Institutional

To create an institutional change, we work to transform the ideas that govern institutions in terms of how they believe they can create impact, help them identify new avenues for collaboration, and demonstrate how they can create sustainable, positive change in the communities in which they operate.

Community

For positive impact to sustain itself, community buy-in is necessary.This is why we engage with the communities where we operate. A measure of how a community otherwise dormant either adopts positive practices, changes its narrative, or collaborates to support its members is how we ascertain transformational change at a community level.

Systematic

Systemic change is the fourth and most important pillar of sustainable transformation. Through advocacy and our interventions, we address the processes, norms, or structures that obstruct the path of sustainable change, and we work with systemic partners to create sustainable and scalable impacts.
