Experienced Entrepreneurs empowering their peers
From their experience in building their own ventures, the founders decided to help others start their own dream companies. One venture after another, and the solidarity investment model was created.
This model was made to ensure the fairness among every party involved; the investors, the entrepreneurs, and the employees of the entrepreneurs.
When we were beginning, it looked like it may not be as profitable as other models, but patience and perseverance showed us how it created sustainable growth and profit for all.
