Support for Small Business

OPIC is committed to helping American small businesses participate in the global economy. For more information see our Small Business Guide, a list of some of our small business partners, and learn more about our Expanding Horizons workshop series for small business.

Investment Funds

In response to the critical shortfall of private equity capital in developing countries, OPIC provides support for the creation of privately-owned and managed investment funds. These funds make direct equity and equity-related investments in new, expanding or privatizing emerging market companies. OPIC-supported funds assist emerging market economies to secure long-term growth capital, access management skills, and secure the financial expertise, all of which are key factors in expanding economic development.
