Agora Entrepreneurs have the vision, leadership, and execution skills to lead high-potential, competitive companies in some of the poorest regions of the Western Hemisphere. Simply put, Agora Entrepreneurs run companies that solve social problems. Their hope is to create something much bigger than themselves – something that can materially make people’s lives better.
Our entrepreneurs embody the essential mission of Agora Partnerships: using business as a force for good.
We support these impact entrepreneurs through our Accelerator because they represent a more efficient method to combat the scourges of poverty, inequality, and climate change than any other “development method.”
In addition to their participation in the Accelerator, Agora Entrepreneurs measure IRIS-based social and/or environmental metrics, publicly report on them, and are among the first entrepreneurs to be rated by the Global Impact Investing Reporting Standards (GIIRS).
