About Botho

Emerging markets are home to 85% of the world’s population —and us.

For over a decade, Botho Emerging Markets Group has been a leader in guiding Fortune 500 companies, governments, development institutions, small businesses, and nonprofits in navigating the world’s fastest growing markets.

We are entrepreneurs and investors, thought leaders and scholars. Creatives and innovators connecting capital, catalyzing conversations, and creating opportunities to implement solutions to complex global problems. We’re guided by a common set of values: curiosity, collaboration, and impact.

What we learn from collaborating closely with SMEs and multinational companies as well as government and international organizations, we share to advance a more sustainable, inclusive world.
