Who we are

A global facilitator approach

As a network, we create synergies by linking our partners’ collective expertise, commitment and resources. We connect the dots between the different stakeholders from the global Inclusive Business community. Our aim is to increase access of businesses to support mechanisms as well as local implementation structures of partners, investors and other initiatives and networks.

We offer services and partner with both inclusive businesses, as well as support organisations and initiatives. These include:

• Bilateral donors as well as international and multilateral organisations

• National and international private sector associations, investors and private funds

• Initiatives, networks and civil society actors

• Public and corporate foundations.
