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.
Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data
ANDE collects data on entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world through our Ecosystem Snapshots, as well as data overall support levels for entrepreneurs globally. We hope to move towards more direct alignment of this data with the SDGs, in particular, SDGs 1, 5, and 8.
