Economic Development Organisation (EDO)

Partnering with developing nations to build first world equivalent economies

Evidence based

The EDO model is an evidence-based, commercially viable approach to development based on cooperative capitalism and focused on sustainability and wealth generation for everyone.

Wealth generation

EDO offers both the funding to galvanise development and the management structure to ensure that funds are utilised transparently and ethically. Our goal for each project is wealth generation for people, government, and investors.

Social impact

Doing good is at the forefront of everything we do. Our projects must be good for people, the environment, the economy, and governments. We help community members reach their goals and fulfil their potential.
