Global Innovation

Building a culture that stimulates ‘collective genius’

Social enterprises and their innovations are instrumental in helping address the toughest global development challenges. But every social entrepreneur will agree that no matter what their social enterprise focuses on, where they are implementing it or what stage they are in, there is one challenge they all find to be extremely painful — fundraising.

Global Innovation Exchange is a tech platform that aims to accelerate innovation in developing countries, using our ever-growing database of innovations and funding to reveal curated content and industry insights for social entrepreneurs, funders who fund them, and other development professionals.  GIE helps them fundraise more easily and quickly so they can spend less time on fundraising and more time on scaling their innovation.

GIE also benefits funders and investors who can showcase their open funding and portfolio of innovations as well as find new innovations. Our growing database can benefit all development professionals who are interested in learning more about innovations in their sector or geography of interest.
