Dutchman, leading with flying colours

dutchman.jpgThe Dutch national committee for international coorperation and sustainable development (NCDO) is behind the Business in Development Network (BiD), an online-community that wants to boost entrepreneurship in developing countries. They have just awarded 16 business concepts within their BiD challenge.

Have a look, there are some clever, scalable ideas there, amongst them solutions for sustainable business solutions and recycling, such as the utilization of sugar cane.
With the activities of NCDO it seems that governmental agencies eventually take up the challenge of promoting local business in developing countries - wouldn’t it be great to see more of this from the likes of GTZ, DFID?
