How We Work
Grow to Market is a 501 (c) (3) dedicated to reducing global hunger and poverty. We provide technical and business management expertise to food enterprises that are positioned for growth in local or export markets, help them prepare their business plans, and link them to investors or other financial institutions. Our local and international experts are trained to conduct managerial, financial, technical and legal reviews of each food enterprise according to international standards. With financial support from our funders, we provide technical assistance and training to selected enterprises and prepare them for investment to expand their markets to consumers and grow their linkages to producers.
For investors, we offer an ever-growing portfolio of producers, processors, and other agri-businesses that are good investment partners. Because we target areas of the world characterized by food deficits and malnutrition, investors who work with Grow to Market can look forward to a meaningful social, as well as financial, return on their capital. If your vision is to help fight hunger through the power of entrepreneurship and innovation in food systems, then we can help you put your capital to work.
We provide consulting services to ensure that an investment partnership is successful to both parties. Grow to Market can help with analyzing and finalizing debt or equity agreements, and with post-investment technical assistance or business management advice. Many of our services are provided by local experts—including market analysts, business planners, financial, legal and food safety specialists—helping to bolster expertise and capacity in target communities that helps achieve longer-term impact.
