Weav facilitates trust in cross-cultural business relations empowering entrepreneurs in East Africa and their partners in northern Europe.
We explore and advance new ways to collaborate, innovate, finance, and measure impact.
Our vision is a world where local aspirations empower global collaboration.
Our mission is to facilitate cross-cultural business relations that overcome uncertainties and enable social and environmental impact.
Our approach is to broker intellectual and economic resources through a network of like minded and ambitious organizations.
We support the aspirations of local actors in the process of addressing local and global challenges. We do this by engaging with social innovators at grassroots level and by conducting joint research ventures to understand local systemic propensities and cultural dynamics. We believe that the unique capacities and insights of local groups and organisations are vital for ensuring sustainability on all levels. In that sense, the local ownership of processes and solutions is at the center of our attention.
To enable efficient global collaboration on complex issues, we work towards weaving knowledge at the local level with international resources and expertise. We identify and broker synergies between stakeholders in local and global innovation systems through which mutually beneficial partnerships can test and scale impact-driven solutions and exceed sustainable development goals.
Our work is naturally grounded on an empathetic position towards all human beings.
In our constant pursuit to embrace new learning, we cling to the virtue that ‘we don’t know better’.
We trust every person’s capacity to create change for themselves and for others.
Our approach is inherently founded on promoting the most effective ways to turn investments into long-lasting impact.
