Base de données d'investisseurs et d'assistance technique

Cette base de données est destinée aux entreprises qui recherchent une assistance technique et/ou financière. Elle établit la liste des organisations et des initiatives qui apportent différents types d’aide, par exemple du capital sous forme de subventions, de prêts et d’actions, ou de l’assistance technique sous forme de conseils ou d’aide à la création de partenariats ou de réseaux.

Nous vous encourageons à nous faire part de vos commentaires et nous suggérer d’autres organisations qui pourraient être intégrées à cette liste.

La base de données est disponible uniquement en anglais.

ABOUT THE DATABASE

Who is this database for?

This database aims to serve inclusive businesses that are looking for sources of support to help them grow, ranging from capital to technical support.

 

What does the database cover?

This database lists organizations that provide technical and financial support to inclusive businesses. The database will continue growing as support organizations are registered. Inclusive businesses are diverse, and so too are the range of organizations that provide support and the types of support they offer. The resources listed cover a continuum of financing solutions, from grants and concessional financing to commercial finance and private equity. They also include organizations and initiatives providing technical assistance (TA), advice, partnership brokering, information, advocacy, and networking. The database is easy to navigate and provides useful filters such as the range of financial support provided and the stage of enterprise supported (if such information is available). 

More organizations will be added over time and suggestions are welcome. Other database that we recommend include:

► GET.invest: focused on renewable energy in Africa
► Nexus for Development: focused on Southeast Asia
 The Mix: Database on microfinance services

Why and how was the database developed?

Inclusive business entrepreneurs often face difficulties identifying partners that could provide crucial financial and technical support. Even though such support is available, information about it is often fragmented and hard to find. The database addresses this challenge, making information on financial and technical support easy to identify and navigate by providing easily searchable categories and filters.

The entries and information provided in the database are compiled by the research team using information publicly available on organization websites or provided directly by the organizations themselves. 

 

Who developed the database?

The Practitioner Hub for Inclusive Business (now inclusivebusiness.net) and the Asian Development Bank set up this database to help overcome this challenge. The Connect to Grow programme supported further development of this database in 2016, specifically to include intermediaries in its target countries. In late 2017 and 2018, the DFID Impact Programme funded the most comprehensive review and update of the database yet, which was implemented by Endeva. The Endeva team reviewed the categories and all existing entries, and also added hundreds of entries with the support of the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) and other partners.

ANDE has just launched a new site of their own that provides data about financial and non-financial support available for small and growing businesses in a specific city or country. ANDE’s Ecosystem Snapshots aim to help those supporting entrepreneurs to foster conditions in which businesses can thrive. 

 

USING THE DATABASE

What can users search for on the database?

You can keep your search for organizations broad by just selecting the finance and/or technical support offering you are looking for or you can narrow down your search by selecting further filters such as type of organization, sector, region/country etc. If you are looking for a specific topic that is not included in the current category list, use the keywords search bar to search the entire database. This will return results on that topic from the whole database.

 

If users want all entries from Asia, does one need to select all Asian countries, too (or ditto for other continents)?

No. If you would like to see all the material for one continent, for example South Asia, select ‘South Asia’ under the ‘Region/Country’ filter and click on the ‘Apply’ button. This will bring up all intermediaries that provide support in South Asia.

 

Can users submit a new entry for inclusion or edit an existing entry in the database?

We recognise that this is not an exhaustive list and our aim is to add more organisations on a regular basis. Hence, we eagerly welcome new entries and encourage organisations to get listed. Go to your My iBAN-dashboard/My database entries, add a new entry and fill in the form with the details of the resource you wish to submit. The database team will review the entry before it is approved and post it on the site within a week. Please note that only submissions that match our criteria will be included.

We also encourage and welcome your feedback and suggestions of any other organizations that could be included. 

In addition, we value feedback on existing entries, as well as feedback on the usefulness of this database to your work. Please have a look and get back to us!

 

The link to a specific resource is not working, what can users do?

All our database entries directly link to external websites of organizations and authors from which resources can be accessed. Consequently, we have limited control over links and external resources may change over time. If you notice a dead link, please help us to keep the database up to date by writing an email to info[at]ib-an.net. The link will then be updated or removed.
