The aim of this blog is to explores many exciting issues my team and I are exploring at a time. The central focus is on agriculture, the improvement of ICT access facilities and what role better, cheaper, faster internet access has to play in development and business development in general.
Occasionally we delve into SMEs, best practice in accessing finance, exploration of the missing middle / meso-finance / the financing gap (US$10,000 – US$100,000) and all other topics that fall in between. How are we going to tackle the endemic lack of capacity and skills to transform opportunities into bankable projects that can attract capital, create jobs and widen the tax base of our nations? Its obvious that official development aid is not going to meet challenges we face and grow our economies, what role is the private sector to play?
Looking feedback to your engagement!
