WHAT WE DO
Help Impact Incubators Succeed and Scale
We inspire incubators and social enterprises in the ecosystem primarily through the impact we deliver to our beneficiaries. We also share our story, successes and lessons learnt - knowledge that directly impacts the journey of our member incubators.
We are open and transparent about our learnings and knowledge and share these for purposes of building ecosystems, cultivating partnerships, promoting collaboration and evangelizing social entrepreneurship.
We document our learnings and actively share them with the wider ecosystem.
The Incubation Replication Guide is designed with 4 comprehensive modules to guide one through the extensive process of setting up an incubator for social enterprises.

Knowledge sharing by Thought leaders and Industry practitioners

We help existing incubators establish, manage and grow a successful Social Enterprise Incubation program by providing the following:
Hands-on Training on VITALS
Our business acumen has been translated into VITALS - a technology platform that captures and tracks the incubation process and integrates the data in a single place and provides the requisite tools to analyze and share data in a meaningful manner.
"VITALS is a powerful tool that helps us manage and streamline our incubation and investment activities efficiently. It elevates our performance as a team as we now have a common understanding and visibility on our support to entrepreneurs. The clarity it brings is unmatched and puts it above any other tool that is out there."
- Priya Thachadi, CEO Villgro Philippines
Customized handholding & diagnostic panels to help set Quarterly plans
"Being part of the Villgro Global network, we have gotten more than we bargained for. Villgro has been a trusted partner and 'an elder brother' since inception. They have generously shared their time, resources, knowhow, tools & templates that allowed us to leapfrog the steep learning curve of setting up an incubator. This win-win partnership ensured that we focus on the core (adding value to enterprises) allowing us to achieve substantial strides in under 5 years including a continent wide expansion across Africa."
- Wilfred Njagi, CEO Villgro Africa
