The purpose was to conduct a study of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Madagascar with the purpose of determining the feasibility of building an impact enterprise accelerator to enhance local business capabilities.
Impact Amplifier was asked to map the ecosystem, access the viability of an accelerator, and make a set of recommendations, which could direct the development of a GIZ-supported accelerator in Madagascar. This report was made possible by the generous contributions of many experts in Madagascar, Africa, Europe and the United States.
The GIZ team based in Madagascar, and Cape Town provided thorough support, guidance, and expert assistance to Impact Amplifier throughout the process. We would like to thank those involved in the interviews for their wealth of experience, understanding, and critical feedback.
