Our Approach

Identify markets in the SEA Ecosystem exposed to long-term growth and development. 

Understand the underlying market dynamics, risks and limitations of the system.

Create a toolkit of available technologies in respect to the limitations of the system. 

Map the problem & solution space and explore the adjacent possible. 

Facilitate exchanges of appropriate technologies, expertise and resources. 

Our Approach

We focus on urban regions of East Africa with populations greater than ~1 million.

We focus is on the rapidly urbanizing regions of East Africa, specifically urban areas with populations greater than ~1 million in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda & Rwanda. We believe these cities will be the engines driving regional social and economic growth development due to their connectivity and density, in turn, offering tremendous untapped potential for value creation.

Identify markets in the SEA Ecosystem exposed to long-term growth and development. 

Regional economic reports and analysis function as a basis for this identification strategy. By tracking overall sentiment of trade deals, infrastructure development as well as public and private investment we can map our focus and direct our resources.

Understand the underlying market dynamics, risks and limitations of the system.

Each region and market faces its own unique dynamics, risks and limitations. Connectivity forms the base of what is possible. From this we can identify further economic, social and cultural constraints that can both inhibit and enable opportunity.

Create a toolkit of available technologies in respect to the limitations of the system. 

Based on the constraint mapping of the system under analysis, we can create a toolkit of technologies available at our disposal. Network speed, mobile device density, API access and much more all shape the tools we have at our disposal.

Map the problem & solution space and explore the adjacent possible. 

After the dynamics of the market have been mapped and a toolbox of available technologies identified, we can move on to conducting market research and isolating potential business models. The Adjacent Possible provides our north star for innovation in Value Creation and Value Capture.

Facilitate exchanges of appropriate technologies, expertise and resources. 

After a business model and solution approach has been identified we then facilitate access, if needed, to key networks in developed markets for the exchange of knowledge services, technology solutions and mentorship.
