It takes more than money to make a startup successful. At the heart of Quona is our sense of connection—to founders, to our investors, and to the markets we serve across the globe. When we invest, we put our global and local experience to work, helping portfolio companies maximize impact and financial returns.


Before becoming an independent venture firm in 2015, Quona got its start inside of Accion, a global nonprofit committed to creating a financially inclusive world. Today Quona and its portfolio still benefit from Accion’s global presence, institutional relationships, and deep history of impact investing in emerging markets.
