Why empowering entrepreneurship? 

SMEs represent about 90% of businesses and more than 50% of employment worldwide. In emerging economies, formal SMEs contribute up to 40% of national income GDP. This means that small and local businesses are at the very foundation of a country’s economic well-being. 

And when they thrive, they have a ripple effect that has a positive impact on all aspects of life for the people around them. 

Over the years, we’ve supported over 3,200 SMEs and startups to get started, keeping going and grow. 

Our work is only made possible through collaborations with organizations and individuals around the world who are invested in reducing economic inequality and advancing societal prosperity. When you partner with us, you create opportunities for entrepreneurs around the world to build impactful businesses, create jobs, develop talents and contribute to their local economies.
