Engineers Without Borders (EWB)
EWB Ventures is a seed-stage investment vehicle backed by Engineers Without Borders Canada. We are dedicated to supporting early-stage, highly scalable, innovative, for-profit social enterprises in East and West Africa. We make tailored, long-term investments of up to $100,000 in ventures with high potential to drive systemic change for the benefit of the underserved in new, untested ways. Specifically, we focus on the early-stage of the “pioneer gap,” offering a unique blend of support to entrepreneurs who are often starved of the capital, talent and patient partnership that is required to succeed in the earliest days building a scalable social enterprise.
