Growth stage capital for businesses restoring refugee stability

Why Refugees?

There have never been more refugees on our planet than at this moment. Innovative solutions are needed to provide greater stability to 70 million displaced people. Access to and the ability to participate in the global marketplace is a powerful factor in regaining self-sufficiency.

Our Firm's Thesis

Refugees are both undervalued and overlooked. Businesses founded by refugees are materially more likely to succeed, refugee employees add tangible value to the companies they serve and, as a market, the refugee community is growing year over year. Amplio Ventures, by investing with a refugee lens and leveraging this undervaluation, backs enterprises that are founded by refugees, leverage the refugee workforce and/or focus on the global refugee community which will yield high financial returns while achieving measurable impact.
