Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs
The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) is a global network of organizations that propel entrepreneurship in emerging markets. ANDE members provide critical financial, educational, and business support services to small and growing businesses (SGBs) based on the conviction that SGBs will create jobs, stimulate long-term economic growth, and produce environmental and social benefits. Ultimately, we believe that SGBS can help lift countries out of poverty.
Members of ANDE include both for and nonprofit investment funds, capacity development providers, research and academic institutions, development finance institutions and corporations from around the world.
ANDE is part of the Aspen Institute, an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC and also has offices in Brazil, India, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria, and South Africa.
