After many decades of stagnation and financial repression, greater access to finance has been providing an unprecedented stimulus to entrepreneurship in sub-Saharan Africa in recent years. In particular, the development of financial markets has boosted high-potential entrepreneurial ventures in sectors ranging from biotechnology to telecommunications and services. With the world now staring its worst financial and economic crisis in 80 years in the face, the question has been raised: what are the implications of this development for further financial market development in sub-Saharan Africa, and how the crisis may impact on entrepreneurship. As such the time is ripe for an appraisal of financial market development and entrepreneurship in sub-Saharan Africa.
