Who We Are

A Global Facilitator Approach

As a network, we create synergies by linking our partners’ collective expertise, commitment and resources. We connect the dots between the different stakeholders from the global Inclusive Business community. Our aim is to increase access of businesses to support mechanisms as well as local implementation structures of partners, investors and other initiatives and networks.We offer services and partner with both inclusive businesses, as well as support organisations and initiatives. These include: • Bilateral donors as well as international and multilateral organisations • National and international private sector associations, investors and private funds • Initiatives, networks and civil society actors •Public and corporate foundations.

Our mission is to promote inclusive business globally – by supporting the scale and replication of inclusive business models and engaging all different types of stakeholders. To trigger collective action IBAN ‘connects the dots’ between the vast number of businesses, existing initiatives, networks and stakeholders around the world. On a global, regional and national level it facilitates access to knowledge and information, enables peer-learning and exchange formats and fosters partnerships.

Knowledge and Information- Compiling and sharing publications, guidelines, checklists and market research from a broad range of sources, we facilitate access to relevant information and knowledge.  

Workshops and Events for Practitioners- Online and offline learning and exchange formats provide numerous opportunities for interaction between the different members of the inclusive business community.   

Partnerships and Networking- On a local level, we enable access to local hubs and partner structures.  

Policy Dialogue- We also facilitate dialogue with policy-makers on an international and regional so that frameworks conducive to inclusive business can be created.
