Avanti is an equity-free accelerator for early stage businesses in markets that lack an entrepreneurial ecosystem.
We build programs to help develop entrepreneurial ecosystems by providing tools, knowledge and support to entrepreneurs in early stage companies. By doing so, we build entrepreneurial communities and connect them to Avanti’s worldwide network.
Entrepreneurs are critical for the economic development of economies as they help create jobs, generate wealth, encourage social change and foster innovation.
• In Europe, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) account for 99.5% of businesses and 2/3 of total employment. (Source: Eurostat).
• In the US, SMBs employ 135 million people. (Source: Dun & Bradstreet). When entrepreneurial ecosystems struggle, there is a halt in the generation of economic growth.
• This pandemic has severely affected the development of entrepreneurs, providing a roadblock for cities and regions to thrive. Entrepreneurs are nation builders. Right now, they need help to keep igniting growth.
