Logo develoPPP

Would you like to expand your business activities in a developing or emerging country and thus contribute to improving the living conditions of the local people? Then develoPPP is the right funding programme for you!

For over twenty years, with develoPPP, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has been promoting the commitment of entrepreneurs who wish to invest sustainably in a developing or emerging country and expand their local operations. To this end, it provides technical and financial support of up to 2 million euros in more than 60 developing and emerging countries. The prerequisites for funding are a long-term business interest in the country and a sustainable developmental benefit for the local people.

Your Benefits

  • Professional and financial support of up to 2 million euros with a maximum of 50% public funding
  • Competent advice and support on site with the help of local networks
  • Available in over 60 countries worldwide
  • Two specialised funding instruments for established companies and aspiring start-ups

develoPPP Classic

The develoPPP Classic funding instrument is aimed at established small, medium-sized and large enterprises that wish to invest sustainably in a developing or emerging country and expand their business activities locally. It can be used in over 60 countries worldwide and is deliberately flexible in terms of content. What all develoPPP Classic projects have in common, however, is that they combine a long-term business interest with a sustainable developmental benefit.

Ideas Competition Open: Apply by September 30th!

The funding of projects with develoPPP Classic is decided within the framework of an open ideas competition. The competition takes place four times a year and is open to all companies that meet the program's conditions of participation.
