Mapping the Impact Investing Sector in Brazil

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 31, 2016
Updated: Monday, June 8, 2015

During the past 10 years of impact investing in Brazil, we have observed a significant development in the impact investing space. Five years ago, only a few players identified themselves as impact investors, very few organizations in the social sector were investor-ready, and there were almost no co-investment opportunities. A steep increase in the number of investors and amount of capital, greater coordination among players, and a more professional workforce active in the industry today have facilitated the development of impact investing. This market study of the impact investing sector in Brazil reveals significant market growth. Nineteen of Brazil’s largest impact investors, including fund managers, banks, foundations, family offices and others surveyed expect to commit 40% to 50% more capital to impact investments in 2014 compared to 2013.

Impact Report 2013: State of the Small and Growing Business Sector

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 31, 2016
Updated: Monday, June 8, 2015

This report highlights the state of the SGB sector and also ANDE's vision for our future. You may notice differences from previous years' publications. This year, we have designed a report that we hope will be a reference for organizations who already are involved in the sector. Rather than making the case for SGBs, this report focuses on the progress and challenges that we have seen over the past five years. We draw on data provided by ANDE members and others over the past year to understand sector trends. We also leverage ANDE's proprietary research and the work of our member-led working groups and regional chapters to highlight important issues and milestones. The member initiatives that we describe represent just a small fraction of the exciting developments among ANDE members.

The Impact of Entrepreneurship Database Program 2015 Mid-Year Data Summary
September 2015

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

The Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI), a collaboration between ANDE and Emory University, is designed to explore – and answer - key questions about enterprise acceleration including: Do acceleration programs contribute to revenue growth? Do they help companies attract investment? Do they work as well for developing-world impact entrepreneurs as they do for developed-world tech entrepreneurs?

This report summarizes application data collected from 3,113 early-stage ventures entrepreneurs who applied to participating accelerator programs during 2013, 2014 and early 2015.

Entrepreneurship and Acceleration Questions from the Field Volume I

Posted By Administration, Monday, March 21, 2016

Entrepreneurship and Acceleration: Questions from the Field 
February 2015

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

In this brief, we use data from the Entrepreneurship Acceleration Research Initiative in order to respond a question submitted by the MasterCard Foundation about Youth Entrepreneurship in Africa: "At The MasterCard Foundation, we have a portfolio of youth entrepreneurship projects that we support in Sub Saharan Africa. We’re always looking for data to better understand the space and to inform our programming. I’m wondering if you could share any data by ages 18-24 and 25-30, and by African country or region if possible. Do you see anything interesting under these parameters?"

This report depicts the landscape of development organizations that fund and support small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in developing countries: 1) multilateral development banks, 2) bilateral government donor agencies, and 3) development finance institutions (DFIs).  The report is a new contribution to both the development community, as well as the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE).  Advocacy and policy work is a strategic priority for ANDE, and the report's findings will enable the Network to understand the international development community and to be more strategic in its approach as it seeks to influence and shape the international development SME agenda.
