Our views and studies are sought at national and international level. We welcome your views and opinions on our work. You may share subjects with us, that you think will have a positive impact on our society and stakeholders.


The founding partners and the team of VERDE have a strong commitment to entrepreneurship. Underpinning everything we do is data. In order to progress into the future we need to understand what has (and hasn’t worked) in the past. The more we know about our consumers and products, the better chances we have of anticipating their needs in the future. That is how we shape up new companies for them to have the best chances to succeed in the marketplace.

We also partner with several companies which believe in our capacity to create value, with thinkers, designers, engineers, and technologists, to work together to launch and scale innovative ideas in very big ways.

We partner with entrepreneurs (early stage to late stage) to accelerate growth and commercialize innovative ideas in any sector where we find value in the concept and its viability over time.

VERDE’s engagement is in powering the platform www.scaleup.mu.
