Philanthropy

Wilderness Markets works with Non-Profits and Philanthropies that wish to assess the potential for long-term triple-bottom line sustainability using a value chain approach to identify and prioritize opportunities.

We understand the challenges associated with graduating grant-based projects to self-sustaining, financially viable enterprises. Therefore, we work with our non-profit partners and philanthropies to develop a value chain framework that helps us understand the entire supply chain, from production to consumption, within the context of its geography and institutional setting. By linking disparate aspects of the industry, we can understand the constraints to impact investing and minimize those barriers to build financially viable enterprises.
