Winrock International takes on the world’s most urgent and complex challenges, delivering evidence-based solutions that empower the disadvantaged, increase economic opportunity and sustain natural resources. We bring a spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation to projects in over 40 countries around the world and in the U.S., working across sectors to align public and private-sector interests.
Rooted in more than 65 years of innovative programming, we have decades of successful business collaborations and a rich history of engaging the private sector. We created an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Arkansas, catalyzed a specialty coffee sector in Myanmar and boosted productivity and incomes in Mozambique.
We are proud of our longstanding history of developing market systems that connect farmers and small businesses to viable income-generating opportunities. We see business partnerships as a means to further economic opportunity both in the U.S. and throughout the world, empowering local commerce while enabling global trade.
Throughout the years, Winrock’s integration of public and private sector priorities has evolved along with our programs. Today, we partner with numerous companies across a wide range of development goals and business objectives including human trafficking, education, environmental sustainability, clean energy, entrepreneurship and agricultural productivity. We identify shared-value opportunities that address social and environmental goals while sustaining private sector growth.
Recognizing that the world’s problems are increasingly complex, and that Sustainable Development Goals are best tackled collaboratively, Winrock designs and develops solutions and partnerships that account for the dynamic nature of global issues.
