Introducing Our New Website

By Laura Davis | Sun Oct 21 2012
Welcome and thank you for visiting our “renewed” website.
I’d like to provide a brief overview of the changes we’ve made. Our primary goal for the new website is to enhance your experience. Your experience is woven into everything we do. We are fundamentally an impact investment company, but what we do goes far beyond facilitating direct investments into businesses in developing countries. The RENEW experience provides our investors with stories, memories, relationships, opportunities to explore, learn and teach, and the means to impact nations and achieve financial returns. So why should you have to wait until you travel with us to start enjoying your experience? We hope our website provides you with the first of many directional signposts on the journey of a lifetime. Here’s an overview:
Simple navigation:
Knowing that investing in developing countries can be daunting, RENEW’s brand and services are designed to make the process easy and enjoyable. You will find clear symbols and simple language on the website to guide you to resources, tools, opportunities and stories about investing in developing countries.
Customized pages:
New pages have been created for our investors and partners. Because RENEW is optimizing impact creation in developing countries through investing, we rely on strong collaboration and partnerships with development organizations to make investments profitable and efficient. A “For Partners” link on the homepage directs current and prospective development partners to information about our model, our services, our past performance and some of the partners we have worked with in the past. A “For Investors” link on the homepage directs current and prospective investors to the Investor Lounge. This is an evolving page where we add new features for investors to explore investing in excellent opportunities in developing countries. In the Investor Lounge you can learn about our services, explore the steps to investing, learn about our “econ-tourism” trips, see example investments and more.
A simplified message:
“Impact investing,” or whichever term you chose to describe investing for financial and social returns, is an emerging field in finance and philanthropy. Success stories are only starting to emerge and the field is packed with what can be confusing, academic jargon. We do our best to keep it simple and make it easy for investors, partners and business owners to engage in a new strategy for development. To reduce ambiguity we put what we do front and center on our homepage – We facilitate direct investments into promising businesses in developing countries.
There’s much more on the site that we hope you enjoy including quotes, blogs and a full description for a new strategy for how the West can engage Africa and other developing countries. We will be making more changes in the future, so please stay connected with us and please send us your thoughts and feedback!
