With our partner ANDE towards inclusive digitalization in Africa

The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the need for digital solutions. That's why we now support ANDE to promote digital transformation of business support organizations. Enabling them to provide better services for small and growing businesses (SGBs).

Together with the GIZ Sector Project on Sustainable Economic Development and the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), we aim to facilitate inclusive digitalization in Africa. Especially for entrepreneurs and innovation enablers, which the pandemic caught unprepared.

Our project "Inclusive Digitalization in Sub-Saharan Africa” gives them access to research data and promotes peer-learning on a pan-African level. In doing so, ANDE supports enterprise support organisations and innovation enablers to optimize their digital strategies and services.

With access to improved digital programmes and services, African enterprises can become more digitally capable and resilient.
