We are guided by Smart Policy Design & Implementation (SPDI) methodology:
IDENTIFY pressing problems
DIAGNOSE underlying causes
DESIGN high-potential and feasible solutions
IMPLEMENT and monitor proposed solutions on the ground
TEST high potential solutions with rigorous evaluation
REFINE solutions based on continuous monitoring & feedback
Theory of our Methodology - Incubators
by Sam Buck | Incubator Data Scientist
FinMango incubators aim to develop a series of metrics that identify how the program is helping to solve the problem of youth unemployment in developing countries through entrepreneurship, and asks what explains successes among participants.
There is a youth unemployment problem
Youth want to be entrepreneurial
Barriers to youth entrepreneurship are not so substantial to render this impossible
Measuring Program Inputs:
Incubators will keep some information on program participants’ aptitude and positionally. This allows us to not only point out resilience and identify outliers, but also to track what types of students are most successful in our programs.
