G20 SME Finance Challenge

The purpose of the SME Finance Challenge is to source the most innovative ideas to unlocking private finance for SMEs in the developing world, especially those solutions that leverage public resources in some way. The 15 winners of the competition will be invited to the next G20 summit in South Korea this November to share and discuss their ideas . As the person in charge of MENA outreach, I believe your organization would make a great network partner or part of a collaborative team entry for the challenge. 


A Network Partner shares news and information about the competition with its member organizations and encourages them to enter their solutions. In exchange your agency would be featured (logo and a brief description) on the SME Challenge website along with the many other high profile organizations such as the International Development Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE). A second way would be to enter a solution into the competition, which you could do in collaborate with one or a group of your private sector affiliates or contacts – one example of which might be a private bank or venture capital firm. The G20 has stipulated that public sector organizations can participate as long as the lead entrant is a private sector organization.

The Challenge website: http://www.changemakers.com/en-us/SME-Finance please take a moment to look it over. We are very interested to hear your feedback and speak with you about working with us to get out the message about the Challenge and this amazing opportunity.
