Featured Ideas Festival Scholar includes Thomas Flahive. Small and growing businesses (SGBs) and entrepreneurs around the world have the power to create jobs, stimulate long-term economic growth, and produce environmental and social benefits that can ultimately lift countries out of poverty. But businesses operating in emerging and developing markets cannot do it alone. They need a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem to support them along their growth trajectory. This session will look at the challenges and opportunities for SGBs and the organizations that support them, and the various ways that ecosystem actors can work together in this common vision.
