Argidius-ANDE Finance Challenge

The Argidius Foundation and ANDE launched the Argidius-ANDE Finance Challenge in 2012, as the first of its kind competition designed to support scalable models to provide finance for small and growing businesses that require $20,000 – $250,000 in early-stage capital.
