The vision and partners behind the programme

What is the programme’s vision?

Biniyog Briddhi: Scaling Impact Enterprises of Bangladesh (SIE-B)

Biniyog Briddhi (“B-Briddhi”) Phase II is a multi-year programme supported by the Embassy of Switzerland in Bangladesh and implemented by Roots of Impact and LightCastle Partners. Building on its successful Phase I, the programme aims to improve the lives of underserved groups in Bangladesh and increase their access to essential products and services by boosting the growth and scale of local impact enterprises. B-Briddhi Phase II integrates a gender lens and actively supports climate adaptation. Set up as a public-private development partnership (PPDP), the programme’s Phase II continues to deliver vital capacity building to impact enterprises in Impact Investment Readiness, Impact Measurement & Management, and Impact-Linked Finance Readiness. It also provides eligible impact enterprises with catalytic capital in the form of Impact-Linked Finance instruments SIINC and IRMF. 

B-Briddhi Phase II unites many important stakeholders including investors, incubators, accelerators, and other service providers. In addition, the programme advocates for a thriving impact ecosystem in Bangladesh by collaborating with a growing network of partners, peers and stakeholders. Among B-Briddhi’s knowledge partners is the SOCIAL FINANCE ACADEMY, the capacity building arm of Roots of Impact.
