Partnering and supporting local entrepreneurs and communities, who share our vision and values.
Connect. Support. Learn. Together.
Through Equal One, we partner with as well as support local entrepreneurs, or local communities interested in entrepreneurship ventures, who share our vision and values.
Snow Leopard landscapes are large, and individual practices vary across the region. We conduct a situation analysis to better understand the ecological, social, cultural and economic context.
Under the ecological component, we assess components such as the local ecological context, the threats to snow leopards and other biodiversity in the landscape, the challenges local communities face while sharing space with biodiversity, and the potential environmental and ecological impacts of the on-going or proposed business.
For the social context we assess components such as inclusivity along gender, class, caste, or other social groups, equitable distribution of benefits, and potential to adapt to climate change.
For the economic context, we assess components such as the business feasibility of the project, the market chain, and traceability and transparency of the value chain.
Based on our initial assessment and dialogue we offer support based on the needs expressed such as seed funding, capacity building, training, and establishment of conservation programmes. We also offer networking opportunities and the creation of a community so local entrepreneurs from different snow leopard landscapes can connect with, learn from, and support each other.

You could also partner with us on the Vision Equal One mission, and assist local entrepreneurs with aligning with the Vision.
