Village Capital

2012

Overview

Village Capital uses the power of peer support to build enterprises that change the world. Inspired by the concept of the “village bank” in microfinance and peer support groups, Village Capital puts the hard tasks of building companies (i.e. criticism, strategy, feedback, and legwork) in the hands of entrepreneurs. They organize cohorts worldwide and run education programs focused on intensive peer review. Student intern Patrick Huang worked to identify partner organizations to collaborate with Village Capital, conducted due diligence in identifying promising entrepreneurs who are driven to alleviate poverty or reduce environmental impact, built capacity of those entrepreneurs in developing business plans, and obtained investments to increase scale.
