Investing capital in start-ups and scale-ups in Malawi is part of the 'Accesserator-model'. Boosting the country's economy through the expansion of businesses and Malawian-based ownership of the companies are key. Can this model be the future of African development? Come and discuss this with us!
Accesserator, a Dutch for-profit company, started investing in start-ups and scale-ups in Malawi in 2017. Through their extensive network, they locate profitable businesses and committed entrepreneurs, such as cattle farmers, a beekeeper, a smokeless-briquette maker, and a soap and detergent producer. EMMA researched the Accesserator model in Malawi and created the ‘Accesserator Magazine 2018’: an annual report in the critical, narrative and visual EMMA-style.
On April 17 EMMA and Accesserator will present this Accesserator Magazine 2018. To put the work of Accesserator in Malawi in a bigger picture, Dutch and international experts in African and Malawian development will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of this modern form of development ‘aid’ in Africa in two discussion sessions. Of course, the Accesserator model in Malawi will be reviewed in detail. Join the journalists, NGO-employees, impact investors and civil servants in answering the question: Is investing in entrepreneurship the future of Africa?
