The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN ESCAP) and Sweef Capital have formalised a partnership to catalyse women’s entrepreneurship through impact investing in Asia. The partners will work to unlock growth capital for small and medium enterprises, through the development and management of private equity impact funds targeting women as business owners, leaders, employees, and consumers.

The establishment of Sweef Capital was supported by UN ESCAP’s Women Enterprise Impact Investment Fund, with the  financial support from the Government of Canada, through Global Affairs Canada.
