OTW invests in impactful SGBs in Nepal and Myanmar’s “missing-middle” finance gap that have the growth potential to generate 100 jobs for every 400K Euros invested. We are committed to the environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards set by the International Finance Corporation. Our funds are managed by our on-ground team of locals with international expertise who understand and work around the challenges posed by the business climate in Nepal and Myanmar.
Above all, we are looking for a strong management team with a clear strategic vision to distinguish themselves from its competitors. We like to invest in well-rounded teams with strong sectorial knowledge and desire to learn and build upon their experiences.
We partner with SGBs that have proven the sustainability of their business model. We are looking for companies with a known history of obtaining growth objectives supported by a stable financial performance.
The problem or pain point your business is tackling must be big enough to generate substantial market demand. Beyond proven demand, your business should also have the potential to scale and withstand the pressures of growth.
Products and services that replicate those of others don’t excite us. We are looking for new products, approaches and propositions that can change and disrupt the industry it is operating in.
We work with companies that go beyond CSR initiatives and integrate impact generation into their core business. We want to invest in profitable business that can also create jobs for those in the bottom of the pyramid and produce lasting social and environmental impact at scale.
