They are starved of investment, talent, mentorship, and the technical assistance they need to grow.
  10. 10. UNLOCKING POTENTIAL AN INTRODUCTION TO EWB PARTNEREWB.CA It is urgent that we unlock the potential of African economies. Persistent youth unemployment and the lack of locally generated income in African economies is leading to unacceptable rates of poverty. Climate change is affecting sub-Saharan African countries disproportionately — resilient communities are needed now to maintain food and economic security into the future. Sub-Saharan Africa is becoming an attractive option for foreign investors looking to foster social value. Yet, capital is still not being channeled to early-stage social enterprises that are perceived to be risky bets (Rockefeller Foundation, Omidyar Network).
