We featured ANDE members and their entrepreneurs in our communications series ‘Exploring Digitalization Journeys’. This blog meets ONOW Myanmar, a social enterprise committed to delivering financially sustainable positive change in the lives of the entrepreneurs they work with, to hear how they digitally support entrepreneurs in Myanmar.
The COVID-9 pandemic accelerated a worldwide trend toward digitizing business advisory, coaching, training, and technical assistance services for small and growing businesses (SGBs). A recent ANDE survey of 30 enterprise support providers found the average share of digital services jumped from 24 percent pre-pandemic to 72 percent at the end of 2020.
2019 was a promising year for the small and growing business (SGB) ecosystem. The recently released State of the Small and Growing Business Sector report from ANDE shows that a wide variety of investment vehicles were launched last year, committing capital close to $3 billion.
