The AECF and its anticipated impact as a market shaping, pro-poor innovation fund

Corin Mitchell

A thought leadership paper by Corin Mitchell and Hugh Scott of KPMG Development Advisory Services.

The Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF) supports innovative business ideas, in the areas of agribusiness, rural financial services, and renewable energy that are commercially viable and will have the biggest development impact on rural Africans. The AECF is explained in the context of pro-poor growth and the Making Markets Work for the Poor (M4P) paradigm.

The AECF is about partnering with business and inclusive business.
