Organization Mission

We believe that the best ideas for solving some of the world’s most critical problems can come from anyone, anywhere. We can fund innovations focused on any developing country, and can invest in any sector relevant to international development where there is a commitment to improving the lives of those living on less than $5 a day.

We support innovators at all stages of development. Through grants, loans (including convertible debt), and equity investments ranging from $50,000 to $15 million, we back innovations with the potential for social impact at a large scale, whether they are new business models, policy practices, technologies, behavioural insights, or new ways of delivering products and services that benefit the poor in developing countries.
