Social enterprises in emerging economies suffer from the capacity challenge to meet the growing needs of the startups and economy. Enterprises do not have access to right resources who can assist them in implementing and streamlining internal processes and help them to scale. To measure the social, environmental and economic impact of investments in the enterprises that are active in the value chains, requires an understanding of the target populations served, product or service being offered and the inter-connected role played by all stakeholders.
