Support for entrepreneurs in the Global South and investors who commit to creating a positive impact.
In developing countries, the contribution of the private sector is indispensable to ensuring significant and sustainable change. In these countries, the King Baudouin Foundation supports local enterprises in their development projects and particularly those that contribute to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Foundation also closely monitors the development of Belgian impact investing – an area showing significant growth.
- as part of the Business Partnership Facility, conducted in partnership with the Belgian Directorate-General for Development Cooperation, we manage the ongoing call 'Enterprises for SDGs', which supports business projects in the Global South that contribute to sustainable development goals
- we allocate loans and bank guarantees to economic actors in civil society, across various sectors
- and we regularly conduct research among Belgian impact investors.
