About the event

Description

Innovative financing mechanisms are crucial for supporting Series A companies in emerging markets, as they often face significant barriers to accessing traditional financial resources. These mechanisms, which include blended finance, can provide the necessary capital and risk-sharing to foster entrepreneurial growth and innovation. MDBs play a pivotal role in this context by leveraging their resources and expertise to create and scale these financing solutions. MDBs can de-risk investments through guarantees, co-financing arrangements, and technical assistance, thereby attracting private sector participation and ensuring sustainable development impacts. By bridging the financing gap, MDBs help nurture a vibrant ecosystem for startups and SMEs, driving economic growth, job creation, and technological advancement in emerging markets. The critical question is: How can investors, MDBs, and other stakeholders effectively collaborate to design and implement innovative financing solutions that mitigate risks and enhance the scalability of early-stage companies in emerging markets

Session Objectives

Identify and explore:

  • Innovative financing mechanisms tailored for series A companies in emerging markets, discussing how these mechanisms can address unique challenges.
  • Entrepreneurial ecosystem development in emerging markets, highlighting the role of stakeholders in fostering a conducive environment for series A companies.
  • The pivotal role of MDBs in supporting and enhancing venture ecosystems, including their contributions to funding, capacity building, and creating enabling policies.
  • Strategies to cultivate collaborative networks among early-stage companies, investors, accelerators, and other ecosystem stakeholders in emerging markets.
