It emphasises capability and linkage building, recognising that the region has received modest amounts of foreign direct investment in the past ten years, mostly used to enhance productivity and build business capital. These modest levels of investment have reduced the important supply chain pull factor that large foreign direct anchor investments can often give to entrepreneurs (Gereffi, 2014) and micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).This report brings together the testimony of 605 aspiring entrepreneurs, four in-depth case studies, experience from previous start-up and growth stage companies and knowledge from a wide variety of academic and public resources.
