Helping markets work better for the poor is our passion

Agoradev is a woman-owned consulting company specializing in international economic development. Based in Canada, we work globally with public, private and NGO partners to support market-based development programming.

Value Chains

Whether you need a sub sector selection or a full value chain analysis, we can help identify market opportunities, constraints and help design the best programming options for your target population.

Program Design

When your in-house staff is pressed for time, or your organization is new to market-based development, we can help design and write technical and strategic documents.


Thinking about developing market system programs through a “Market System Development” (formerly M4P) approach? We can help train your staff, design implementation strategies and evaluate progress.


We offer multi-day Value Chain, MSD/M4P, and women in markets training tailored to your programming needs.

Women in Markets / WEE

How do you encourage both women and men to take advantage of market opportunities? We start by applying a gender lens to our market evaluations and ensure our programming recommendations address constraints faced by both gender. We can provide strategic advice, including Gender and WEE strategies, program development, evaluations and training.


Want to touch base mid-term to assess progress? Looking for a third-party end of project evaluator? We provide evaluations for economic development programs.
