FUNDING WINDOWS - Enterprise Development

The Enterprise Development Funding Window looks for initiatives that develop innovative commercial approaches to long-term job creation in ways that combine profitability with high social impact.

These projects should reduce risk, remove barriers to market access or improve or broaden supply chains.

Projects can include funding “umbrella” initiatives that can act as channels of support for smaller enterprises or benefit smaller enterprises indirectly, such as facilitation of market linkages and supply chain diversification. Essentially this window looks for new ways of doing things: new business models, products and markets.

An example of a project funded through the Enterprise Development windows is the Awethu Project.
