The Global Innovation Exchange connects social entrepreneurs and funders with the funding opportunities and insights they need to make better, faster funding decisions and have more impact.
The Exchange was co-created with over 100 international organizations from across government, business, academia and civil society who wanted to help tackle the following challenges together:
*How do we ensure the best ideas are getting the right resources?
*How do we ensure that anyone with a good idea can contribute to international development?
*How do we make it easier to access the resources available?
*How can we better connect the supply of solutions with the actual demand for them?
*How can we reduce the duplication of innovations in development?
*How do we rapidly expand the most successful innovations and bring them around the world?
The Exchange is also designed to support complementary initiatives around the world including the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, innovation challenges, and innovation initiatives with donors, NGOs, governments, and the private sector. We work collaboratively with other platforms and organizations to amplify and connect their work with the world.
