Preethi Rao—LEAD at Krea University—witnessed at ANDE’s Global Summit last September in Accra, Ghana, passionate and experience-based discussions on bridging finance gaps for women entrepreneurs and connecting craft-based enterprises with markets, paving the way for collaborative South-South solutions and a sustainable impact in the global entrepreneurial ecosystem.
The past five years could be described as “when gender-lens investing became cool.” However, few interventions aim to change investor behavior.
ANDE's London Member Meeting brought together experts and thought leaders to address key challenges in small business development. From reducing the gender financing gap to bridging the climate capital gap, the event showcased innovative solutions and emphasized the importance of collaboration. Excitement builds for the upcoming Annual Conference in Accra, Ghana.
