Collaborative for Frontier Finance
The Collaborative for Frontier Finance is a multi-stakeholder initiative that aims to increase access to capital for small and growing businesses (SGBs) in emerging markets.
CFF works with diverse stakeholders – including local capital providers, institutional investors, development agencies, philanthropic funders, and field building organisations – to accelerate financing solutions that target SGBs. With a bias to action, CFF works in three ways: by building and empowering networks of these stakeholders, capacity building and undertaking market-based initiatives to address systemic barriers, with a view to fostering a peer-to-peer learning environment and providing a platform for collective action.
Small Foundation has provided core funding to CFF, including financial and non-financial support to the Early Stage Capital Providers network catalysed by CFF.
