Job creation is one of the greatest drivers of poverty reduction and stability. The key to those jobs? Local entrepreneurs. Poverty and instability persist due to basic barriers that prevent local entrepreneurs from accessing formal business opportunities. Building Markets was founded to solve this problem.
We build markets, create jobs, and sustain peace in crisis-affected countries by connecting local entrepreneurs to new business opportunities.

Global poverty is rising for the first time in decades, but access to economic opportunity can help families build thriving lives. Responding to the urgency of this moment, a group of generous donors will match every dollar up to $100,000 raised through December 31, 2022. Your gift will enable Building Markets to adapt and scale our programs to reach more small businesses creating critical jobs around the world.
We update our community with stories, research, impact metrics, news and special events.
