    Enterprise creation, innovation and business growth are an important part of employment policies that can address one of the endemic problems of developing countries, which is the lack of demand for formal jobs.
    It is an undeniable fact that higher rates of enterprise creation are associated with higher levels of employment.
    As an entrepreneur, I always aspire to make a distinction in my community. I am therefore open to opportunities that will fortify mutual benefit to propel communities to grow in either the corporate / entrepreneurial world!

    Hi there! My husband and I own a socially and environmentally responsible tour company that specializes in Himalayan mountain expeditions in Nepal and Tibet. Once we grow we’d like to offer training for rural Himalayan communities on small business development, financial literacy and micro-finance that supports tourism. We’d love to parter with your organization to seek funds, network with other businesses working on social change and get people interested in travel in Nepal and Tibet. We’re Kathmandu/Washington DC based right now so we’re local too. Check out our website at http://www.mogambotreks.com. Hopefully IWB will be working in Asia soon too!

  11. Hi,

    This is a wonderful initiative that I definitely want to be part of. As a former bank executive and entrepreneur, I have first hand experience of how access to investment funds / finance make or break brilliant ideas.


  12. Mark Soper says:

    Good luck with this, guys. As I understand it, a big barrier to development is the lack of funding options in the the SME range that effectively promote risk-taking among entrepreneurs. It’s encouraging to see that IWB loans aren’t guaranteed, giving entrepreneurs in developing countries a shot at some of the benefits we enjoy from equity investment systems like venture capital here.

    I’m looking forward to investing through your service.
