We help build effective ecosystems that provide SMEs with the right services in all stages of their growth:
- By supporting growing SMEs to be investment ready and gain access to finance
- By providing tailored capacity development services that enable entrepreneurs to meet the challenges of growth, such as incubation, acceleration, training, coaching, mentoring and networking
Over the past years, Argidius’ partners have reached thousands of individuals. Our partners’ projects have a footprint in more than 15 countries. Our present geographical focus is Central America and West and East Africa.
The past months we have commissioned SME ecosystems mappings in our target geographies, because we believe these maps are valuable tools in developing strategies for engagement. The mappings below give a contextual overview of the corresponding country and shed light on the challenges and opportunities for SME development and poverty alleviation. In addition, the reports inventory organisations that can help build local capacity and catalyse and accelerate SME development and growth.
In the future we will share mappings of other countries too, in order to promote and encourage cooperative and productive relationships among different organisations in this field.
