The Inclusive Business Accelerator started in 2014 as the IB Accelerator consortium with co-funding support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of the Netherlands. To play a catalysing role in providing tailored inclusive business services demands business and financial knowledge as well as experience in local markets. The BoP Innovation Center, SNV Netherlands Development Organisation and Venture Capital for Africa combined these fields of expertise.
In January 2017 the Inclusive Business Accelerator became an independent foundation. The IBA model is still very reliant on partnerships – to learn more about our partners, please click here.
