Book 1 : Second ETHOS Report (English)

This report is a collection of ETHOS II program experiences (2020-2021). It aims to provide a reference for future World Bank efforts to promote digital entrepreneurship in developing countries and those affected by fragility, conflict, and violence (FCV). Recognizing the strategic value in supporting entrepreneurs unleash their creativity with digital technologies, the ETHOS II program, in collaboration with SUNY Consortium and World Bank Digital Development team, managed to convene virtually 27 participants from 12 countries despite the global COVID-19 pandemic. This new cohort is now part of the ETHOS alumni group, which includes 52 participants from 16 countries. The objectives of the ETHOS program can be summarized as follows: ETHOS provides specialized services to search, identify and keep track of entrepreneurial talents from developing and FCV countries; ETHOS creates a seamless learning environment by delivering entrepreneurship training through knowledge sharing and skills development for entrepreneurs and startups and facilitates business connections; and ETHOS provides continuous and sustainable support for entrepreneurial talents through funding opportunities and by building a global network with potential investors.
