In late 2015, social entrepreneurs and grass-root organizations in Grenada were on the verge of losing access to a large pool of financial resources. Few had known those resources existed. Out of the desire the ensure that problem solvers never lost access to opportunities again, we began researching financial solutions for social entrepreneurs. It is here Archangel was born.
To create environments for social and economic success
We firmly believe in the power of Caribbean ideas and enterprises.
We want to provide tangible and intangible spaces where we can work together to solve problems, share knowledge and access opportunities.
To provide access to and create opportunity for financing and development for non profits and social entrepreneurs in the Caribbean Region.
We search for, and share existing financing and development opportunities with our network. Where no opportunity exists, we will work along with you and other partners to create new solutions unique to our space, need and circumstance.
Archangel Investments was launched in 2016. The company is based in Grenada but serves and collaborates with people and companies within the OECS and wider Caribbean. Our priority areas are, Technology, Education, Agriculture, Creativity and Health. For social entrepreneurs within these fields, our aims span,
- Raising the region’s first Social Business Venture Fund
- Creating a shared regional data centre & market research space
The problems facing Caribbean economies are both social and economic. In most cases, these issues are not mutually exclusive. To adequately address the social issues, we must also address our economic issues. This is why Archangel Investments believes in Social Entrepreneurship.
Social entrepreneurship is the creation of businesses which develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues. Social entrepreneurs solve a specific problem such as the creation of income for the poor or the provision of essential products and services including food security, healthcare, clean water or clean energy.
