Our goal

We are helping families and businesses reach their economic potential and build better lives.

We advance our mission by supporting companies through advisory services, targeted coaching, and support for startups, and by providing high-caliber governance through board oversight. Our decades of on-the-ground experience in what the poor need and insights into new technologies set us apart.

We bring specialized expertise

As part of our mission to advance financial inclusion, Accion works closely with our partners at Quona Capital, a venture firm focused on financial technology for inclusion in emerging markets, to catalyze innovations that can radically improve the quality and availability of financial services for the underserved.
Accion Global Advisory Solutions partners with financial service providers around the globe to better meet the financial needs of underserved individuals and small businesses. Leveraging innovations in technology and financial services, we provide strategic and operational support to our partners to help them remain the providers of choice in their dynamic markets.
Accion Global Investments invests in established financial institutions and innovative financial service providers that leverage technology to support underserved microentrepreneurs, families, and individuals in emerging markets.
Accion Venture Lab invests capital in and provides support to innovative fintech startups that improve access, quality, and affordability of financial services for the underserved at scale.
The Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion (CFI) is an action-oriented think tank that engages and challenges the industry to better serve, protect, and empower clients. We develop insights, advocate on behalf of clients, and collaborate with stakeholders to achieve a comprehensive vision for financial inclusion. We are dedicated to enabling 3 billion people who are left out of — or poorly served by — the financial sector to improve their lives.
