SMEs are at the heart of economic growth and industrial development across the African continent. These organizations stimulate employment, attract investment, encourage development of skills and technology, promote entrepreneurship, foster innovation and enhance exports.
Yet many of these businesses fail at high rates when facing inevitable operational, strategic and financial challenges. Our core belief is that SMEs will prosper when their managerial and technical capacity is strengthened and they get the capital they need to expand their business. We call it Blue Inventure’s Theory of Change and it guides our work.
