Social Impact Organization



The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs —ANDE, founded in 2009 — is a pioneering member network of organizations focused on supporting and strengthening small and growing business ecosystems and working to end poverty and promote prosperity through entrepreneurship in developing economies.

ANDE, hosted by the Aspen Institute, operates via eight dynamic regional chapters spanning Africa, Asia, and The Americas. Our members have provided invaluable support to hundreds of thousands of small and medium enterprises through their collective efforts, focusing on investment, developing and sharing the evidence base for what works in incubation, acceleration, access to capital, business planning, mentoring, and much more.

ANDE is part of the Aspen Institute.
