Majira Project

Community Development through Entrepreneurship

Majira means summer in Swahili, so in a nod to the growing season we help small businesses and startups grow. 


Our vision is to create wealth and more sustainable communities by enabling growth for small businesses and startups led by founders of color or serving underserved communities.
