WHY CHOOSE US

The organization supports the development of markets primarily through the capacity building, technical assistance, fundraising, acceleration and incubation, but also through interventions to improve the way markets work. Over the years, the organization has developed considerable expertise, credibility, networks, tools and experiences that can assist African governments, employers, workers and other development practitioners in their work to increase enterprise-driven growth, expand job opportunities, and deliver better and sustainable climate-resilient economic growth and low carbon development.

ADDRESSING MARKET CONSTRAINTS

We analyse and understand the local context to identify binding constraints; then design targeted interventions to address those binding constraints. Examples include addressing Market Systems Development, supporting development of Agro-Industrial Policy, and supporting select Agro-Value Chains.

ENABLING ENVIRONMENT FOR Growth

Our priority is to create an enabling environment for businesses, typically by reducing the burden of regulatory compliance, so that businesses can generate economic growth and opportunities for the poor. We prefer to 'cut red tape' and 'level the playing field' for start-ups and growth enterprises.

 LET BUSINESSES LEAD

Our priority is to strengthen Private Sector Engagement by collaborating with individual businesses – because they know the market best, can co-finance initiatives, and have innovative ideas and implementation capacity of their own, thereby making access to 'innovative finance' add greater value.
