Elevate Social Businesses

Elevate is a social business builder that brings entrepreneurial solutions to global poverty.

We build from scratch, invest start-up capital into, and manage agribusinesses that work with smallholder farmers and fishers. We improve the livelihoods of farmers and farming communities by improving agricultural productivity, creating job opportunities, and facilitating long-term linkages to high value markets.

By building our own businesses from scratch, using a market-driven approach working with larger companies, with value-added support from an expert central team, we are able to eliminate many of the risks and barriers that prevent social businesses focused on economic development from being successful. Our experience as business builders across multiple countries allows us to replicate the model in new geographies to increase our impact.

To buyers, we provide sustainably-sourced, high quality local products that meet buyers’ demands at competitive prices.

To impact investors, we offer a pipeline of tried and tested social investment opportunities supported by best-in-class teams.

To philanthropists, we offer the opportunity to support high-impact social businesses that actually guarantee market linkages and ensure sustainable livelihood improvements for poor communities, supported by rigorous M&E.

To organizations working in agriculture, we consult on best practices and provide thought leadership on replicating similar models.

In the last few years, we have built businesses across Latin America (El Salvador, Colombia), the Caribbean (Haiti), and Asia (Indonesia).

Our goal is to become the leading social agribusiness builder in three geographical markets – Latin America, the Caribbean, and Southeast Asia.
