Strategy and impact measurement to build a better future
We are a tool for solving different global challenges through local action. To achieve this, we have an impact strategy based on the theory of change which allows us to focus on interventions to make an even greater impact.
Our theory of change is comprised of the following:
We identify global social and environmental challenges that can be overcome through local action.
To do so, we conduct analyses and research to delimit activities and maximize our impact.

We invest capital and create teams of people committed to contributing solutions for the challenges raised.
We create projects with a triple impact that strengthen the impact eco-system, innovation and entrepreneurism within our organization.
Our results directly and positively influence how the challenges we face are solved. An intended, positive and measurable impact.
Our projects with a social purpose positively influence education, health, poverty and the demographic challenge. At the same time, our projects with an environmental purpose influence biodiversity, cities, sustainable infrastructures, water and climate change.
