Agora Partnerships is a premier business accelerator that promotes the growth of early-stage impact companies throughout Latin America; companies that are solving critical social, economic, and environmental problems in their communities. We are a global community of entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, and individuals dedicated to using the power of business to effect positive change. We work only with early-stage entrepreneurs where the right kind of support can significantly accelerate their ability to create impact.
Over the past two years, we have worked with 18 companies operating in some of the poorest regions of the Western Hemisphere. Over 70% of our Class of '11 received millions of dollars in investment, propelling these impact companies to an average 80% growth rate. Now, we are expanding from our base in Central America and searching for 30 new companies spanning the whole of Latin America to help accelerate impact for the region.
