Quotes from Coaching Organisations
"The importance of combining financial with non-financial support is critical to developing enterprises. Working on the GIZ-WIDU project resonates with our purpose as Private Equity Support of facilitating early stage financing through the development of an investor ready pipeline within the SME segments. This de-risking is critical to crowding in more capital, even the informal friends and family pools of capital, as WIDU has successfully shown."
