Our
Approach

Jamma supports Transformational Business Network's (TBN) vision of helping entrepreneurs build impactful businesses and unlock financing. By providing training in key areas such as marketing and financial skills, TBN helps create jobs, relieve poverty, and improve livelihoods in East Africa.

Entrepreneurs can face significant obstacles in creating a successful business; limited access to finance and a lack of business skills or suitable mentors being examples. By advocating with governments and international donors on behalf of entrepreneurs, building business capacity, and connecting purpose-driven enterprises with early-stage finance, TBN provides key support to businesses seeking positive change within their communities.    

Working with entrepreneurs and investors to challenge the status quo.

TBN organises summits and alumni events to foster learning, discussion, and connections between entrepreneurs, local and international investors, and NGOs from around the world. Small and medium sized African businesses are given the opportunity to connect with the right investors and take full advantage of their long-term potential.

“We believe in the potential of entrepreneurs to lead with integrity, to scale their businesses exponentially and to create jobs and prosperity for all.” - TBN

“Young African social entrepreneurs are setting out to change the world, make a profit and, in the process, inspire other young people to take the future into their own hands.” - Reuben Coulter, TBN

Elephants Alive has been studying and researching African elephant populations since 2003, and delivers research solutions, advocacy and education to promote harmonious coexistence between elephants and people.

Jamma wholeheartedly supports this committed non-profit organisation in its goal to develop and grow our understanding of elephant ecology. Their important research contributes towards the long-term survival of the African elephant and thereby maintaining the vital biodiversity of large parts of rural Africa.
