- Reaching Entrepreneurs through Alternate Models (PDF: 1,826KB)
infoDev launches a new report on lessons learned from a virtual incubation pilot in Vietnam. Virtual incubation aims to bring services and tools provided by traditional business incubation to the entrepreneur, in contrast to the entrepreneur availing those services and tools at a fixed location. In addition, understanding that an entrepreneur has varying needs, virtual incubation provides a more diverse range of these services and tools. This includes outreach services, drop-in services and facilities, online tools, consultancy, mentoring, and networking. The pilot project focused on Vietnam and aimed to assess the cost-effectiveness, sustainability, and impact of services and tools provided to entrepreneurs through this intervention.
A new report by infoDev extracts the lessons from the m2Work idea challenge and hackathon, which together served as the pilot for infoDev’s “From Mind to Market” approach to fostering mobile entrepreneurship.
