Announcing a new challenge to stimulate small businesses in emerging markets: 

Around the world, small businesses form the backbone of a healthy economy, generating employment, wealth and ultimately, global prosperity. But for these businesses to grow, they need to attract middle and senior level managers who are skilled enough to guide these dynamic firms. Yet this can be challenging in emerging economies where high-caliber talent can be difficult to identify and often attracted to more established organizations.


To address that challenge, the Argidius Foundation and the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), announce a new opportunity: The Argidius–ANDE Talent Challenge. The challenge seeks to source and help scale promising solutions that address critical human capital constraints for small and growing businessses (SGBs) in emerging markets.
