PARTNERING TO ACCELERATE ENTREPRENEURSHIP (PAEC) INITIATIVE

Entrepreneurs play a vital role in driving economic growth, creating jobs and innovating to improve people’s lives through market-based solutions. Impact investors are looking for a pipeline of businesses to invest in that generate both financial and social returns.
Yet impact investors are often unable to connect with the early-stage entrepreneurs due to the “pioneer gap” that exists between high-risk, promising early-stage enterprises and impact investors looking for enterprises to invest in.
The Partnering to Accelerate Entrepreneurship (PACE) Initiative aims to catalyze private-sector investment into early-stage enterprises and identify innovative models or approaches that help entrepreneurs bridge the pioneer gap – thus unlocking the potential of thousands of promising enterprises in Rivers State.
