Where We Work

NESsT has ongoing operations in 10 countries across Central Europe and Latin America. But our impact and reach is truly global, having supported social enterprises in nearly 50 countries around the world.

We believe having a local team and an ongoing presence in the countries where we work is critical to maintaining the truly engaged partnership we have with our portfolio of social enterprises, to understanding the opportunities and realities of local markets, and to identifying high-impact social enterprises.
