Institutional Assistance Support for Small and Medium Enterprise Development in Africa

Author: Isaac Oluwajoba Abereijo Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/07/2020

In today's globalized world, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are becoming widely acknowledged as an important agent of development, specifically in African countries, as they address issues such as unemployment, poverty, and inequality in the economy. However, for SMEs to maximize their full potential, they need supportive institutions to assist with their foundation and stabilization. While there are many supportive organizations for SMEs, awareness of these associations is still lacking among aspiring entrepreneurs. Institutional Assistance Support for Small and Medium Enterprise Development in Africa is a pivotal reference source that presents case studies on SME assistance institutions, best practices in administration and uptake of services at these institutions, and comparative studies of business development services in Africa. While highlighting topics such as policy appraisal, gender inclusiveness, and internationalization, this publication is ideally designed for managers, entrepreneurs, policymakers, provosts, government officials, non-governmental organizations, industry professionals, students, researchers, and educators seeking current research on administrative support for small and medium enterprise promotion and advancements in Africa.
