Insights for impact entrepreneurs

The Ground_Up Project has a long track record working with impact entrepreneurs worldwide, helping them understand investment-readiness, prepare pre-due-diligence documentation, thinking through their key business and financial questions. We delivered investment-readiness preparation to individual entrepreneurs as well as entrepreneur networks such as Accelerate 2030, ITC SheTrades and GreenCape.
