ABOUT US

 

VISION

 

BUILDING AN INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE WORLD

We believe that the challenges facing our world – climate change, scarce natural resources, and growing inequality – require new approaches. We envision a new economy, one that is both socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable.

 

We’re not alone. There’s a global movement – driven by a new generation of diverse entrepreneurs – who believe the world can and must change. These creative entrepreneurs are launching dynamic new enterprises that offer innovative solutions to our most pressing social and environmental challenges.

 

Tomorrow’s “unicorns” will be those enterprises delivering strong social and environmental impact, alongside compelling financial returns.

 

STRATEGY

THE FIRST PLATFORM FOCUSED ON DIVERSE ENTREPRENEURS BUILDING A NEW ECONOMY

Good ideas and talented entrepreneurs are broadly distributed, but opportunity is not.

 

As a global leader in the movement for a new economy, INCO seeks out and provides support to a wide range of entrepreneurs in 35 countries.

 

We believe innovation should lead to a more inclusive and sustainable world. Since technology can be a powerful tool for providing economic and social opportunities at scale, we leverage new technologies to tackle the most pressing social and environmental challenges.

 

Through a unique model, we support entrepreneurs at every stage of development, helping them refine their ideas and grow their enterprises while ensuring they develop economically viable models with impact embedded.

AN INTEGRATED APPROACH BASED ON 6 ESSENTIALS

TIME

IMPACT ASSESSMENT

To achieve sustainable impact, we strongly believe entrepreneurs need sufficient time. INCO is a patient investor supporting startups for an average of nine months before making a financial investment.

We want our entrepreneurs to achieve sustainable impact. We use 300 financial and 300 extra-financial indicators to quarterly assess the growth and impact of our startups.

CO-WORKING SPACES

Entrepreneurs need space to work on their enterprises, meet with collaborators, and exchange ideas with peers. With dedicated locations in 35 countries, we offer our entrepreneurs free access to co-working spaces.

GLOBAL NETWORK

Innovation comes from sharing ideas. We set up a custom digital platform to connect our global network of entrepreneurs, allowing them to learn from one another and grow together.

OPPORTUNITY

We are convinced there is an abundance of untapped talent within a wide range of communities all over the world. To imagine the world of tomorrow, we scout talent with unconventional-background, from-underrepresented minorities and communities (at-risk youth, refugees, migrants, people with disabilities, unemployed populations, etc.). 

MENTORSHIP

No one succeeds on their own. We provide our entrepreneurs access to a unique network of mentors and experts to help refine their ideas and shape their enterprises.
