Access to information and financial services, regulatory quality, and legal rights of individuals all contribute to the context for entrepreneurial business growth. Please join the ANDE Policy, Legal, and Regulatory Learning Lab (along with its co-chairs, the Center for International Private Enterprise and New Markets Lab) and ANDE member FHI 360 for a conversation about innovations that are most central to the success of SGBs and stability-enhancing innovation in the private sector.  The Learning Lab session will feature FHI 360’s recently released The Atlas of Innovation for Economic Stability, developed with support from The Rockefeller Foundation, which documents new and exciting innovations that enhance economic stability and help businesses (and individuals) grow and prosper in the face of economic, social, and political volatility.

The discussion will explore how access to information and financial services, regulatory quality, and legal rights of individuals all contribute to the context for entrepreneurial business growth and stability-enhancing innovation in the private sector. The Atlas documents new and exciting innovations that enhance economic stability and help businesses (and individuals) grow and prosper in the face of economic, social, and political volatility.
