We work at the nexus of social entrepreneurs and impact investors by narrowing the gap between innovative ideas and access to capital.
We strive to bring creative and positively disruptive solutions to those businesses, ideas, and products that have been left out of the traditional financing space.
How We Work
The Athena business model is intentionally lean. We choose to utilize a highly vetted roster of senior consultants to build customized, competent, skill-specific and region-specific teams for projects. We are selective about the projects and clients we support, choosing to focus on advancing commercially viable projects and investments to narrow the gap in access to and utilization of financial services for vulnerable populations.
Athena Global is a US-based firm, with minimal US presence. We endeavor to:
1. Staff projects with people and teams based in the geographies where we have projects, and from the markets where we work, as much as possible.
2. Capitalize and showcase talent in the markets we serve, minimizing fly in/fly out approaches.
3. Provide quality for our clients by leveraging global expertise adapted to the local context.
