About Us

Our Story

DIFFvelopment was born during a monumental period of underemployment and aggressive student loan repayment, directly following the founders’ graduations from some of the world’s top institutions.

“Frustrated with feeling completely unprepared for all of the financial strain we were experiencing post-college, we began to research what we were experiencing and came to find that our situation was representative of a larger endemic issue. This motivated us to begin exploring possible solutions.”

– Esi Kagale Agyeman Gillo, CEO & Co-Founder

Vision

We envision a world where Black people know their history and view themselves as part of a collective global community that is empowered and responsible for identifying, defining and solving its own socioeconomic issues through visionary entrepreneurship, wealth building and philanthropy.

Mission

Re-empowering the global Black community through historically centered re-education that empowers aspiring Black visionaries to develop their world differently.
