Agora works to support entrepreneurs through a holistic approach. Our central purpose is to provide entrepreneurs with the KNOWLEDGE, NETWORKS, and CAPITAL they need to grow their businesses successfully. Our service offerings are tailored to the companies’ needs and stages and may include thematic Bootcamps, individualized Consulting, and/or access to our Investment Marketplace.

We only work with companies that address critical social problems including the UN Sustainable Development Goals through business growth. While profits are an important proxy for impact, our ultimate goal is to help companies create impact for all of their stakeholders: investors, employees, community, customers, and future generations through environmental responsibility.
