The number one barrier to growth for entrepreneurs in emerging markets isn’t money. It’s hiring and retaining the right employees and developing a coherent human capital strategy. That was the finding of a study of 400 entrepreneurs conducted in 2015 by Village Capital, together with Shell Foundation.

It also makes investments through a venture arm.
