Scaling Access to Finance for Early-Stage Enterprises in Emerging Markets: Lessons from the Field

Commissioned on behalf of: Dutch Good Growth Fund (DGGF) / Investment funds local SMEs 

The report seeks to explore how to improve the scalability and viability of early-stage finance provision, thereby reducing the need for philanthropic capital and subsidies to the local providers of finance and support to early-stage enterprises. To this end, DGGF used a landscape exercise to define and prioritize “archetypes of early-stage finance provision” as the focus of this report. They selected business accelerators, business angel networks and venture capital funds - as three key archetypical models - as the main models to be studied in more detail, together with the broader category of supplemental “non-traditional” debt options. They selected and studied 15 early-stage finance providers in detail. They discussed their initial findings from the in-depth research with 40 field-builders in a workshop during which participants shared experiences, insights and perspectives, and helped to challenge emerging conclusions and identify key points of attention to address in finalizing the report.
