Image Consulting Group (ICG) is committed to empowering minority communities and fostering economic growth in regions where the need is greatest. Through its enterprise development efforts across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and sub-Saharan Africa, ICG is working to create a more inclusive and sustainable economic landscape.
According to Dr Oluremi Ilupeju, Head, Community Development & Engagement, “We believe that by empowering minority communities, we can drive economic growth and create a more equitable future for all. Through our enterprise development efforts, we are providing the tools, resources, and support needed to help businesses in these regions thrive.”
ICG’s approach to enterprise development focuses on building strong partnerships with local businesses and organizations to provide the necessary resources and support to drive growth. This includes access to capital, mentorship and training programs, and market development opportunities.
In sub-Saharan Africa, ICG has established partnerships with local organizations to support enterprise development and drive job creation. Through its work with the government agencies, chambers of commerce and the private sector, ICG has helped to establish a fund to support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the region. This fund provides critical access to capital and business development resources, enabling SMEs to grow and create jobs.
In EMEA, ICG has launched a range of initiatives to support minority-owned businesses, including mentorship programs and networking events. The company has also established partnerships with local financial institutions to provide access to capital and other financial resources.
One of ICG’s key solutions for driving enterprise development in these regions is through the promotion of inclusive growth. This means working to ensure that economic growth is distributed equitably across all members of society. By promoting diversity and inclusion in business, ICG is helping to drive innovation and increase competitiveness, while also creating a more equitable and sustainable economic landscape.
In the words of Dr Oluremi Ilupeju, “We believe that by empowering minority communities, we can create a brighter future for everyone. Through our enterprise development efforts, we are working to create a more inclusive and sustainable economic landscape, where all members of society have the opportunity to thrive.”
