Years of Experience in
Fostering Sustainable Growth in Micro & Small Businesses
DevSolutions works primarily with intermediary institutions - business support organizations, development banks, financial institutions, and multilateral development institutions - that support micro and small businesses (MSEs). We provide advice in a number of areas such as strategic planning, risk analysis, access to finance, curriculum development, and entering new markets.
With our extensive networks, we can broker new relationships, provide market intelligence, and foster partnerships. Given our intimate knowledge of emerging markets, we can give our clients the necessary tools to improve and expand business operations in new areas to reach untapped market segments.
Our team’s combined experience enables us to advise on financing options, and assist with the necessary documentation to approach and tap into various traditional and nontraditional sources of capital.
We can work with our clients to develop planning tools to take their businesses to the next level, through strategies that include the use of technology and/or mechanisms to leverage innovation.
Using design thinking techniques, we work with our clients to conceptualize and develop project ideas and new business models into sustainable projects with impact to foster business growth.
