Mandate

Accelerate Prosperity (AP) is a part of new global initiative of the AKDN in Central and South Asia, which follows guidance from the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) Board to develop more formal structures to catalyze enterprises within AKDN’s main area development programs, where economic opportunities remain insufficient.

The overall mandate of Accelerate Prosperity is to support creation of Small and Growing Businesses (SGB), which are “commercially viable businesses with a potential to create between 5 to 250 jobs” and to facilitate growth of select-existing businesses through relevant knowledge, advice, technical assistance and the capital they need to become the SGBs of tomorrow (ideally within the next 3-5 years).
