Business Partnership Facility

The Business Partnership Facility, initiated and financed by the Belgian Directorate-General for Development Cooperation and managed by the King Baudouin Foundation, grants financial support to companies contributing to the SDGs in developing countries to stimulate private sector involvement.

The BPF supports viable, entrepreneurial business initiatives with a strong social impact. Each applicant is preferably a partnership that brings together actors from the private sector, civil society, academia and/or the public sector. The partnerships seek to sustain social impact through:
  • Creation and maintenance of decent jobs
  • Improvement in average income for low income families
  • Accessibility to affordable goods and service
  • Inclusion and economic development of women and young people
  • Positive impact on the environment through saving resources, reducing emissions and/or preserving biodiversity
