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 by venture capital investors. By investing with a refugee lens and leveraging this undervaluation, Amplio Ventures, backs enterprises that are founded by refugees, leverage the refugee workforce and/or services the global refugee community as a market segment.

We believe:

Refugee entrepreneurs are worth backing;

The refugee workforce is worth leveraging; and

The global refugee community is a market worth serving.
