The Majira Project was started in 2016 and is currently in its 5th cohort. Majira is Swahili for summer, so in a nod to the growing season we help entrepreneurs and companies grow. We match small businesses and startups serving underserved communities with pro bono consultants from The Boston Consulting Group (BCG). In parallel with the approximately 16-week engagement, we at Majira also provide business coaching and mentoring. Once a company joins the program, they also become a permanent member of the broader Majira community.
