About us

We are a pioneering association of professional service providers that deliver Consulting, Mentoring, Capital, Research and Project Management services via commercial and social enterprise vehicles to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in low-income countries.

We invest professional time, energy and skills where others don’t and where the potential for impact is highest, strengthening small businesses and helping them to grow.

We provide an intelligent mix of services to SMEs working in agriculture, renewable energy access, health, education, affordable housing, IT, and financial services.

We identify business opportunities and help to develop and implement viable business plans.

Our global network of professionals makes a real and lasting impact across the world – we transfer professional skills to achieve results, strengthening local organisations and businesses to enable sustainable growth. To date, Challenges Worldwide has successfully placed hundreds of professionals in capacity building roles across 35 countries, helping to grow over a thousand organisations.

Why are we exciting?

At Challenges, we’re in the business of getting people out of poverty, and we believe that business is a powerful way to do that. To paraphrase the old fish saying: give a man a plough, and one family can grow food; set up a plough supply chain, production facility, and sales force, and soon the market is delivering a lot more ploughs to a lot more people than you thought possible. Jobs are being created, and the economy is growing.

By engaging with Challenges, you can witness the benefits and progress that supporting the private sector in the developing world can bring.  You can use your skills and experience in a new and stimulating environment to have a positive and long-lasting impact.
