GROWTHCAP gives strategic, management and Impact investment advice to social responsible businesses in emerging markets empowering women and youth.

Building Businesses

GROWTHCAP has been established to build the businesses of entrepreneurs in privately owned micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME) in emerging markets. GROWTHCAP assists the development of local consultancies and investors, and shares management experience and expertise from around the world.

Strategy for Enterprises

GROWTHCAP has a two-pronged strategy:

  • For micro and small enterprises, with workforces from 1-50, local consultants are used to assist management with their most urgent problems
  • For medium-sized enterprises, with workforces of around 50-500, Advisers from mature economies are added to share their management expertise and knowledge of all aspects of the specific business sector, from sourcing raw materials to marketing and exporting.

Cross Cutting

GROWTHCAP also carries out cross-cutting programmes leading to increased employment and social cohesion.

These include empowerment of women, growing the businesses of women entrepreneurs, developing young entrepreneurs, improving food security by developing agribusiness, sustainable management of natural resources including energy, and building community initiatives.

GROWTHCAP Advisors always address any existing or potential environmental issues. Pollution prevention is a priority, as this can reduce both financial costs (waste management and clean-up) and environmental costs (health problems and environmental damage). Pollution prevention protects the environment by conserving and protecting natural resources while strengthening economic growth through more efficient production.


GROWTHCAP develops and delivers projects on time, within agreed budgets, with high quality and sustainable tangible benefits to entrepreneurs from increased sales and higher profits, while local people in general derive the social benefits arising from increased employment.

Sustainable, Socially Responsible Business Growth

As well as building enterprises, strong management expertise provides sustainable, long term sector development and economic growth, in a socially responsible way.

Socially responsible managements understand their obligation to act in ways which benefit society at large.

GROWTHCAP encourages and assists companies and individuals to adopt best practice in terms of balancing the social and economic impacts of their operations, that is, actions that businesses can take, over and above compliance with minimum legal requirements, to address both their own competitive interests and the interests of wider society.


High levels of business performance flow from building strong and able MSME management, resulting in benefits such as:

  • Increased sales and exports
  • Better designed and quality products
  • Improved profitability for reinvestment
  • Ability to attract external finance
  • Creation of jobs
  • Overall growth in sectors with high potential and those producing goods with a high added-value component.
