Our Story

IMAGO was founded in 2014 by Isabel Guerrero and Zachary Green to close the missing middle in the development sector. Our goal was to help grassroots projects scale the impact of their effective development solutions through participatory, and human-centered approaches.

 

Imago is the last stage of growth in an insect when it attains maturity to find its wings. At IMAGO Global Grassroots, we help our clients accelerate the process of finding their wings so that they can hone their potential to scale impact and take flight.
