How to IPO Successfully and Responsibly:
Lessons from Indian Financial Inclusion Institutions

by Grassroots Capital Management PBC and sponsored by Financial Inclusion Equity Council (FIEC)

This paper examines the 2016 IPOs of two Indian micro-lenders – Equitas Holdings and Ujjivan Financial Services – and how they “hardwired” their missions to prioritize their clients, setting them apart and driving their success. The experience of these two companies suggests how a responsible financial services company can position itself to go public while maintaining its social mission.

Accelerating Startups in Emerging Markets

Accelerating Startups in Emerging Markets:
Insights from 43 Programs

by the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs and Social Enterprise @ Goizueta, Emory University

The second major report from GALI, written in collaboration with Deloitte, compares acceleration in emerging markets versus high-income countries. Examining data from more than 2,400 early stage ventures that applied to 43 programs, it finds more similarities between emerging market and high-income country entrepreneurs and accelerator programs than commonly believed. 

Despite the numerous difficulties of running a startup in emerging market countries, accelerated ventures are often able to grow at similar rates to their counterparts in the United States and Canada. The average effects of acceleration on equity and debt raised were nearly identical in high-income countries and emerging markets, and emerging market ventures were just as likely to report rapid growth.

The executive summary is available in Spanish, French, and Portuguese.
