HYBR’s purpose is scaling positive impact to bring real and lasting change for the African ecosystem.
We aim to solve difficult and intractable challenges to bring prosperity to all.
To fulfil our purpose we are pursuing three innovation missions.
Our mission is to accelerate Africa’s transition towards adopting circular economy principles and actions which are re-localised, regenerative and restorative by design.
Our mission is to create opportunities that enable inclusive African societies for the benefit of many, especially women, youth, and those affected by inequalities.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life, health, and well-being for all Africans.
Each mission is a critical response to a generational societal challenge.
We have three complementary roles which are reflected by our services.
Creating and supporting scalable ventures that develop new solutions that shift key markets.
Designing, testing, and scaling innovative solutions which move the impact needle.
Creating bespoke structured approaches to prepare for and to solve multi-faceted difficult problems.
