SEAF uses an ESG+ investment approach to provide growth capital and operational support to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in emerging markets that are underserved by traditional sources of capital. SEAF’s global reach and proactive business model enable entrepreneurs to accelerate their businesses’ growth and profitability while achieving meaningful and measurable impact. Our more than 32 years of experience have shown that impact investing and maximizing performance complement each other—we can do good and realize strong financial returns. We envision a sustainable and inclusive world where entrepreneurs everywhere have the capital, tools, and support they need to transform their businesses and increase the shared prosperity of their communities.
SEAF will invest $100MM over the next 5 years, which combined with capacity-building activities to create jobs will, in turn, work to create stable economies. SEAF currently supports 500 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in emerging and frontier markets and deepen that support through a targeted deployment of investment capital.
