Enablis Entrepreneurial Network
Co-founded by Charles Sirois and Paul Lamontagne, Enablis is a Canadian-based not-for-profit organisation that supports entrepreneurs in the developing world through its member-driven network, called Enablis Entrepreneurial Network. Launched at the 2002 G8 Summit, Enablis’ global founding partners include the Canada Fund for Africa, Accenture, and Telesystem. Today, with close to 2000 member entrepreneurs, Enablis is the benchmark for sustainable enterprise development in Africa.
Enablis Entrepreneurial Network is an organized, interactive network of entrepreneurs in developing countries who share similar values and who believe in the importance of small-to-medium enterprises for poverty reduction and sustainable development. The result is a group of individuals drawn together by their capacity for entrepreneurship; a powerful force for change in the developing world.
Enablis entrepreneurs are specially selected, formally accredited, and endowed with a code of conduct and set of values that form the foundation of Enablis – Respect, Integrity, Professionalism, and Sustainability. The Enablis network welcomes a wide range of entrepreneurs, brought together by their belief in the power of entrepreneurship, and by their commitment to assisting each other. Enablis exists for, and operates on behalf of its members.
Enablis entrepreneurs are located in South Africa, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana and Argentina.
