Last week, Business Fights Poverty hosted an online discussion with SABMiller to explore the needs and expectations of entrepreneurs and how to support them. Panelists from the Inter-American Development Bank and TechnoServe were also present to share their experiences and engage with online participants.

TechnoServe believes that companies like SABMiller can play a leading role in providing support for entrepreneurs. In addition to investing in training and seed funding for promising businesses, they can lend the expertise of their employees and use their purchasing power to incorporate small businesses into their supply chain.
