What We Do

 The Challenges Group  exists to unlock the potential of markets, making them more inclusive and efficient. We tackle the evolution of market systems by convening partners and enterprises through a hybrid model combining people and technology.

Changing Communities
People + Policy

We identify local, enterprise projects by engaging with supply chains. Working with partners we upskill entrepreneurs within engaged communities to achieve business readiness.
