Triggering Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Economies

Our funding institutions (USAID/HESN, ACIAR, and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and academic partners (LUANAR, Michigan State University, Makerere University, ICRAF, University of Adelaide, Southern Christian College in Mindanao, and University of Hawaii) asked us to tackle the following questions in Malawi, Ethiopia, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya and the Philippines:

How can we develop platforms, networks and communities of practice that effectively reach and develop entrepreneurship and innovation across farmers, companies (both startups and large companies), knowledge institutes and other development agents?
