PFA & THE ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT NETWORK
The Enterprise Development Network (EDN) is a strategic alliance among public and private sector organizations that was established with the assistance of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). Through a growing network of organizations around the world, EDN is designed to bring together the vast resources essential to attract capital (debt & equity) and political risk insurance for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) pursuing business opportunities in developing countries.
OPIC is the U.S. Government's development finance institution. It mobilizes private capital to help solve critical world challenges and in doing so, advances U.S. foreign policy. Because OPIC works with the U.S. private sector, it helps U.S. businesses gain footholds in emerging markets catalyzing revenues, jobs and growth opportunities both at home and abroad. OPIC achieves its mission by providing investors with financing, guarantees, political risk insurance, and support for private equity investment funds.
