BUT GOVERNMENT CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH ... A VIBRANT, COMPETITIVE PRIVATE SECTOR IS THE ONLY SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION.
The ultimate economic engine for job creation and inclusive growth are entrepreneurs and small- and medium-sized enterprises fueled by private investors – both domestic and foreign. B2R is committed to creating opportunities for high capacity, young African leaders to become entrepreneurs and build impactful enterprises in Rwanda and Africa.
POSTGRADUATE TRAINING PROGRAM
To accelerate the careers of B2R Fellows and other high capacity university graduates, B2R launched its C. Dan Adams Business Analyst and Manager Training Program in 2019.
These recent university graduates will get practical experience and a broad range of trainings in entrepreneurship, market research, financial analysis, management, operations and regulations.
Since 2007, B2R has been committed to encouraging, facilitating and being “boots on the ground” for foreign entrepreneurs and investors wanting to build commercial and social enterprises in Rwanda, including:
agriculture is the economic backbone of Rwanda
It represents 33 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product and over 70 percent of Rwanda’s population (over 1.7 million households) are engaged in small-holder farming for the purpose of feeding their families. Improving agriculture impacts the lives of more people than any other sector of the economy.
B2R Fellow – Babson College 2018, Accounting & Entrepreneurship Major
Rosine is working with several B2R partners – Zamura Feeds & Farms, the University of Rwanda and Foundations for Farming – to introduce an innovative conservation agriculture methodology to Rwanda. This disciplined farming approach will benefit small-holder farmers because it can significantly increase yields while reducing the need for expensive inputs and mechanization.

RWANDA'S THINK TANK
ISOKO Institute was formed in 2010 to foster conversations and connections that promote Rwanda’s entrepreneurial economy. We aim to become Rwanda’s premier think tank by providing quality research and advisory on issues that will maximize the potential of Rwanda’s people – investments to fuel the movement, entrepreneurship to empower it, and employment to sustain it.
