For Entrepreneurship & Innovation Ecosystem Leaders

A Step-by-Step Country Master Plan to Create and Drive a Healty Early Stage Investment Market for Your Country / Region

96% of the world economy is driven by entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs. These small- and medium-sized enterprises are the main drivers of economic stability. They recruit more than 60% of the entire working population of the world. In order for them to contribute more to the economies of their countries, they need to meet with new financial instruments quickly. Unfortunately, after the global economic crisis, SMEs, entrepreneurs, and start-ups were unable to access finance as easily as before.


The development of new financial instruments such as crowd-funding, angel investment, acceleration programmes and co-investment funds, and the easing of access to finance for SMEs, entrepreneurs and start-ups therefore play a vital role in economic development.

On the other hand, SMEs, entrepreneurs and start-ups should also be supported by smart public money, so the development of new policies to convert public money to smart money plays an important role in creating an entrepreneur-friendly environment. Developing tax incentives, co-investing with angel investors, regulating crowd-funding, providing incentives for companies based in technoparks, recognising qualified investors, introducing new, innovative financial instruments, providing capacity building programmes, recognising and awarding success, connecting SMEs, entrepreneurs and start-ups with global investment markets and developing new incubation and acceleration programmes are all vitally important factors in the development of an efficient SMEs and early-stage investment market in your countryb/ region.
