Dutch firms increasingly look for more 'inclusive' business models and enter into Public Private Partnerships in order to contribute to inclusive economic growth in the African countries where they invest. Through the study of Dutch frontrunner companies in five East-African countries, this research investigates the critical success factors of such partnerships and their potential to contribute to sustainable development.
