Building Markets is a nonprofit organization that creates jobs and encourages economic growth in crisis-affected countries by connecting local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to new business opportunities.

Why? Because SMEs make up over 90% of businesses in any private sector and create up to 86% of jobs. However, in countries affected by crisis, SMEs are often bypassed due to a lack of infrastructure and information. As a result, a key opportunity to begin generating stability, employment, and self-sustaining growth is lost.

This platform works to address that issue by bringing visibility to local companies that Building Markets has verified so that buyers, investors, and other stakeholders can more readily do business in markets where we operate. The platform also provides our business network with access to new markets and opportunities by collecting and sharing tenders on our tender page.
