Entrepreneurship Development

Our people are inherently entrepreneurial, yet they find it difficult to set up and run enterprises with ease. Constraints like access to technical knowledge, finance, market and poor entrepreneurship capacities inhibit enterprise development. DA has developed initiatives focused at continuous innovation, action and learning to promote entrepreneurship at scale. These initiatives unleash latent energies among communities and build positive ecosystems so that micro entrepreneurs continue to thrive on a sustained basis.

Work 4 Progress (W4P): The W4P program, in partnership with “la Caixa” Banking Foundation aims to expand job opportunities for youth and women who have difficulties in accessing enterprise solutions in economically backwards regions. The W4P platform is designed as a multidimensional and multistakeholder platform to nurture constructive communities; unleash entrepreneurial energies; build a robust enterprise ecosystem; and mainstream micro movements of change. The program prototypes innovations to achieve these objectives through dialogue, co-creation, and collaborative learning with communities and a network of partners.

Systems Play: Systems play is a global collaborative supporting systems innovators who is tackling wicked social-ecological problems. The programme works to support systems innovators; share systems resources in multiple languages; and build a community of praxis to equip those who are addressing SDGs in a systemic way. The Asia hub – Development Alternatives - fosters learning, collaboration, and experimentation, focusing on an issue of intense current concern - job creation for the new economy
