Invest2Innovate (i2i) supports young entrepreneurs in untapped markets. We identify early-stage social entrepreneurs, train them through the i2i Accelerator, a four-month program geared towards growing their businesses, and connect them to i2i Angels, our global investor network. i2i also consults with local and global organizations to strengthen the entrepreneurship environment in these markets, developing innovative workshops, curriculum, networks, and competitions.
At i2i, we think about the big picture, the broader framework that is needed not only for existing enterprises, but to foster the growth of entrepreneurship at the grassroots level.
i2i launched our pilot in Pakistan in 2011 and plans to scale to other countries after 2013.
Our KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) Philosophy? We help innovative businesses to become viable and get funding.
