By harnessing the power of the private sector, we bring business-driven solutions to critical development challenges.

For more than 40 years, Chemonics has worked with the private sector to forge sustainable and profitable partnerships that pay dividends for the people, businesses, and communities we work with. By strategically collaborating with corporations and local businesses, we deliver outcomes that can slow the spread of pandemics, reduce our impact on the environment, help economies rebound, and equip communities with the tools they need to tackle any challenge. We serve as a force multiplier, facilitating linkages between market actors, providing targeted technical expertise, and leveraging on-the-ground networks. We have worked across the spectrum of private sector and development challenges, partnering with Intercontinental Hotels to modernize Jordan’s tourism industry and joining forces with top tech firms Microsoft and Cisco to prepare Moldova’s labor market to compete in high-growth sectors of the future. Through private sector engagement, we bring together businesses, communities, and governments to address critical development challenges and capitalize on opportunities in new markets.
