About Us




Our Philosophy

Economic growth strategies that promote governance, the private sector and small businesses combined with targeted support for poverty alleviation are the keys to economic development.”


The Institute for Economic Growth & Legal Reform (IGROW) is an international economic and legal consulting and training firm specialized in providing technical assistance to governments and multilateral donor organizations on sustainable economic growth strategies, environmental concepts and policies, legal reform solutions, governance and public private policy initiatives and Public Private Partnerships.


Headquartered in Rome with its training campus at its partner’s, Tor Vergata University of Rome state-of-the-art campus, and operations offices in Moldova, Greece, Ethiopia, Canada and Washington, D.C, IGROW offers a unique range of technical consulting and training options for clients based on the philosophy that to promote governance, the public sector must work with the private sector and small business, combined as partners, with targeted support, for building viable business and industries which is key to sustainable economic growth drivers.


IGROW founders and staff have been at the vanguard of this new economic thinking and have been instrumental in working with policy makers in the Eastern Europe, Balkan states, Middle East, Africa, South America and Asia in creating this economic paradigm.  The IGROW Team has successfully accomplished assignments in over 43 countries on 5 continents.


While several countries have made remarkable progress in growing and opening their economies and reducing economic disparity, many countries have been underperforming over the last two decades when measured by indicators such as economic productivity, income inequality, investment climate, and per capita income growth and urban/agrarian environmental reform. It does not have to be that way. IGROW seeks to transfer the knowledge and tools of its experts and practioners experience to countries and multilateral financial organizations and “mainstream” these valuable lessons learned of economic reform and growth while insuring the environment is protected.
