RENEW is an impact-focused investment and management consulting firm that specializes in designing and implementing innovative finance models to address private sector challenges in Africa. With offices in Ethiopia, Uganda, Canada and the United States, RENEW’s core focus is facilitating angel investments into SMEs in SSA. SMEs have the greatest potential for job growth, but their growth is limited by a gap in the capital markets called the “missing middle”. RENEW’s investment model, called The Exchange, reduces the size and impact of the missing middle financing gap by creating angel markets devoted to the countries in which we operate.
