Policy brief on access to finance for inclusive and social entrepreneurship
What role can fintech and financial literacy play?
This policy brief on access to finance for inclusive and social entrepreneurship was
produced by the OECD and the European Commission. It presents evidence on the access
to finance challenges faced by entrepreneurs from under-represented and disadvantaged
groups and social entrepreneurs, and discusses how public policy could harness the
potential of fintech to address these challenges. This covers crowdfunding, blockchain
and the application of big data to finance for inclusive and social entrepreneurship.
The policy brief also discusses the growing need for governments to strengthen financial
literacy among the target groups of inclusive and social entrepreneurship policy,
including with respect to fintech. Different policy approaches are discussed, including
embedding financial literacy training in financial intermediation.
