Small Foundation supports publication of Aunnie Patton Power’s book Adventure Finance
Based on her decades of research and practical experience in the field of innovative finance, particularly in Africa and other emerging markets, Aunnie highlights the need for more and better targeted funding options for early-stage entrepreneurs to create impact and returns. The book showcases real-life examples of innovative financing structures, designed to allow entrepreneurs to flourish, whilst providing pathways for returns for investors.
This resource promises to be an important tool for funders, entrepreneurs and ecosystem players alike. It broadens known horizons on available investment options, and illustrates how these can be put into practice. Small Foundation believes that Adventure Finance can play a role in shifting the narrative around the early-stage investment that is so vital in creating a thriving small and medium enterprise ecosystem in places like sub-Saharan Africa, and is proud to have played a small part in this journey.
