About Us

Amplio Ventures was formed out of Amplio Recruiting, a multi-city staffing agency helping US companies hire dependable employees from the refugee workforce. After placing 5000 refugees in jobs, the greater need of job creation on a global scale was recognized and Amplio Ventures was born.

Amplio Ventures seek to focus on growth stage venture capital for businesses restoring refugee stability. From refugee entrepreneurs to companies employing a large majority of their staff from their refugee workforce, Amplio Ventures desires potential portfolio companies to sustain the following four stakes: refugee stability, monetary velocity, growth ability and leadership vitality.

Amplio connects with portfolio companies through close relationships with ecosystem partners such as the UNHCR (United Nations Refugee Agency), Kiva.org, Five One Labs, Tent Partnership for Refugees and the Refugee Investment Network. We lock arms with founders and leadership teams of potential portfolio companies to determine viability and leverage expert advisors in our network to support the due diligence and capital deployment processes. We are committed to investing $100M in businesses restoring refugee stability by 2030. Share you contact info to join us in funding, advising or referring businesses restoring refugee stability.
