At Grow Movement we believe enhancing the skills of local entrepreneurs to lead their countries out of poverty is the best way to economically empower the people in the poorest countries on earth. We use remote volunteer consultants in over fifty countries to deliver business advice on an ultra low cost base to entrepreneurs in Uganda, Malawi and Rwanda over mobile phone.
In our first 20 months of operations to April 2012 we spent 17,500 GBP working with 161 micro entrepreneurs to create 182 jobs and raise the living standards of 6,700 people. Watch the TEDx talk on the left by our founder, Chris Coghlan to learn how we are creating a model to dramatically lower the cost of business advice to people in the poorest comunities on earth. Violet Busingye, our manager, will also tell you about how we work.
