The African Development Bank under the auspices of its Jobs for Youth in Africa Strategy 2016-2025 and with particular reference to its Youth Entrepreneurship and Innovation MultiDonor Trust Fund supported by Denmark, Norway, The Netherlands, Sweden and Italy hereby invites business incubators, accelerators, and other similar Enterprise Support Organisations (ESOs) providing business development services to youth-led start-ups/MSMEs in Africa to indicate their interest in being considered as part of the roster of long-term partners (size of the roster to be 12 to 15 ESOs) who will be invited from 2019-2021 to take part in competitive bidding processes. This methodology will ensure faster financing process and more efficient partnerships with ESOs. The services to be provided are Business Development Services (BDS) to youthowned start-ups and MSMEs to strengthen their capacity and improve their access to financial services. Through this roaster of partners, the Bank is looking to support existing BDS programs and build the capacity of ESOs within the roaster to strengthen their existing programs, support their growth or expand.
