SGB Evidence Fund


The Small and Growing Business (SGB) Evidence Fund, a joint effort of the International Growth Centre (IGC) and the Aspen Network for Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), supports collaborations between researchers and practitioners to understand the most effective ways to support SGBs and the economic and social impact of SGB growth. 

In 2018, ANDE and IGC synthesized the academic research related to SGB growth and developed a research agenda that outlines the main gaps in the existing evidence. Now, with the generous support of the Argidius Foundation, this fund will support practitioner-researcher collaborations that rigorously tackle these gaps. The resulting evidence will help inform thinking and practice of practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and funders on the most effective ways to support SGBs.

The call for proposals is now open, and submissions are due March 15, 2020. See the call for proposals and other resources, including guidelines, templates, FAQs, and a recording of the informational webinar here.
