" Inspired by the ‘village bank’ in microfinance, we convene and support cohorts of peers," they write on their website. "Our entrepreneurs become allies in one another’s businesses, sharing insights and inspiration, along with hard-won lessons of practical experience."
The numerous Village Capital programs that have take place around the world involve sourcing enterprise leaders, offering training programs and assisting in investments. The "democratization" aspect isn't only on a peer-to-peer level for entrepreneurs: they also have numerous partnerships.
