Emergent Seed Fund
The Emergent Seed Fund will provide start up capital to the entrepreneurs in the Flagship Program who need it to validate their business model.
The Seed Fund is designed to take selected BoP/Green Leap ventures from of the Flagship Program to the next level, as part of the complete innovation ecosystem being assembled at Emergent Institute. The Seed Fund will also look to invest in some of technologies from the Green Leap Technology Bank which are in the Proof of Concept stage in order to make them “commercializable” through the Flagship Program. It is estimated that over 70% of BoP ventures struggle at this stage and require financial and operational support. The Seed Fund will look to fill the existing gaps in the system which include the right talent, training, development process, branding, and marketing.
