Rolando Acuna is tired of seeing micro, small, and medium-sized businesses fail. The provincial director of the Department of Industry and Trade is assessing what his organization has already done for businesses in his district and what can be done in the future. He is looking into tapping the talents of the local state university faculty in addition to USAID and the Ross School of Business to develop capacity in local business owners. Will the cross-sector collaboration do the trick?

Teaching Objectives

After reading and discussing the material, students should:

  • Identify the principles of good governance and how these affect cross sector collaboration.
  • Pinpoint possible gaps between public assistance and MSME client needs.
