BiD Networks mission is to contribute to sustainable economic growth in emerging countries through entrepreneurship.
Preparing emerging market entrepreneurs for investors
Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of any economy. By creating jobs and income, they are crucial to the economic and social development of emerging markets. They are also a powerful force against poverty. However, businesses often encounter difficulties getting started or growing because they lack access to finance and know how.
BiD Network aims to:
Start and grow businesses in emerging markets
Create jobs and income through these businesses
Mobilize private capital and know-how to businesses
BiD Network focuses on high growth businesses based in developing countries with a financing need of US$10,000 to US$5,000,000 over the next five years. We provide professional services to entrepreneurs, coaches, investors, business angels and SME service providers. An international network of partners makes this possible. With our partners we are active in 16 countries.
