Our Philosophy

SANZARU Group is designed around the Japanese philosophical proverb of the mystic monkeys, who teach a sensible approach to life by not allowing evil actions, words and thoughts to take hold of you.

We believe in challenging the status quo by partnering with founders, investors and managers to support them in their journey to create commercially viable products and services with a positive social and environmental impact, and to build lasting, sustainable businesses.

To accomplish our mission, we provide:

  • Funding to grow their businesses,
  • Support on surpassing the hurdles experienced by early-stage ventures, and
  • Advice on go-to-market strategy, finance, marketing and sales.
