We partner with their leaders to achieve leaps of growth, profitability and impact. Today, LeapFrog companies reach 82.3 million people across 21 emerging markets. More than 65 million are emerging consumers, often accessing insurance, savings, pensions or credit for the first time.
We call this distinctive approach “profit with purpose”, because it generates strong results and changes many lives. Leading global investors share this vision and have invested and committed over a billion dollars to LeapFrog.
LeapFrog Investments has announced its annual results, demonstrating unprecedented success and scale for profit-with-purpose businesses.
LeapFrog’s portfolio of companies grew revenue at 28.8% on average in 2015. This figure compares to real GDP growth of 4% in emerging markets, and 1.9% in developed economies.
LeapFrog companies have now reached 82.3 million people with financial services or healthcare, across 21 countries.
Over 65 million of those people are emerging consumers in Africa and Asia, under-served and living on less than $10 per day. Many are gaining access to essential services for the first time.
