New Issue Brief: The SGB Sector and the COVID-19 Crisis 

The effect of COVID-19 on economies around the world has been unprecedented. While evidence on this impact is only beginning to emerge, it is clear that the economic damage has been particularly severe for SGBs in emerging markets. ANDE and Dalberg look at initial evidence regarding the impact of COVID-19 on SGBs and the SGB support sector more broadly in emerging markets. Read the brief, including a summary of current risks, impacts, and needs so that organizations and individuals who support SGBs can ensure more effective interventions. Read the June 2020 data addendum for updated information on what has and hasn't changed.

Coronavirus Resources

The health and safety of ANDE staff and our global network is our highest priority. We are actively monitoring government and multilateral guidance on the COVID-19 outbreak and best practices of other organizations regarding work and events. We are working to engage the network virtually and share best practices in responding to COVID-19 as individuals and organizations.  Please refer to our dedicated COVID-19 page for useful resources, and see our calendar of external COVID-19-related virtual events and dedicated  IMM page in the context of coronavirus.

2020 Annual Conference Goes Virtual 

Each year, the ANDE Annual Conference is the largest gathering of members from around the globe. ANDE has been closely tracking government and multilateral guidance regarding physical convenings and the best practices of other organizations during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, we are reconsidering the physical convening aspects of the ANDE Annual Conference and shifting to a virtual event. We are currently planning to hold this virtual gathering over the same dates as originally envisioned. Save the date for the week of September 21, 2020 and stay tuned for further information and opportunities to get involved and contribute to the agenda.

New GALI Report on Accelerating Women-Led Startups

There is significant evidence that women entrepreneurs face unique challenges in starting and growing businesses, particularly in emerging markets. Acceleration programs represent one potential model for overcoming these challenges through support services and investment. ANDE’s new knowledge brief uses Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI) data on more than 14,000 ventures across 160 countries to examine trends in the acceleration of women-led ventures. Read the brief, which includes a detailed analysis of accelerator experience by gender and suggests areas for further research.
