Amplio Ventures was founded in 2019 with the mission of stabilizing the global refugee community through leveraging the power of the private sector, by investing capital guided by the following belief:
- Refugee entrepreneurs are worth backing
- The refugee workforce is worth leveraging
- The global refugee community is a market worth serving
Refugees are both undervalued and overlooked. Businesses founded by refugees are materially more likely to succeed, refugee employees add tangible value to the companies they serve and, as a market, the refugee community is growing year over year. By investing with a refugee lens and leveraging this undervaluation, Amplio Ventures, backs enterprises that are founded by refugees, leverage the refugee workforce and/or focus on the global refugee community. These investments will yield market-rate financial returns while achieving measurable impact.
