The Global Social Entrepreneurship Network collaborated with the German Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on a new report on the growth of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises. LGT Venture Philanthropy contributed a case study.
Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH implements programs in the field of private sector development on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) worldwide. These programs have the objective to foster the development of new businesses and the growth of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and thereby generate income and employment. Inclusive businesses are of particular importance in this regard, because they explicitly target the world’s poorest and solve development challenges. GIZ aims to support the scaling up and replication of inclusive businesses globally and in a systematically integrated and cost-effective manner.
The report "Grow – Scale – Impact" was published with the objective to provide bilateral private sector development programs and other practitioners with a user-oriented, simple and practical guide on how to support the scaling up and replication of inclusive businesses, based on best-in-class know-how, tools and methods. LGT Venture Philanthropy contributed a case study.
