Does your organization have a product or service that could make a difference for people in emerging economies?

Take the Innovation into Action Challenge and earn the chance to compete for $100,000 in prizes, build relationships with development professionals and their firms, and put your innovation into action in one of 100 locations around the world.

The Innovation into Action Challenge provides the first step on the ladder to investment, access to donor-funded projects, and the support services critical to grow your businesses.

The competition is open to small companies, nonprofit organizations, and entrepreneurs worldwide. You must have a product or service that is beyond the idea stage and has generated at least one transaction. Your business model must be scalable, and your startup must have less than $3 million in revenue in the past year.

What is the Challenge?

The Innovation into Action Challenge is designed to surface the ideas, products, and services that will help people in developing nations tackle their most pressing social and economic development problems. All submissions are welcome, across the spectrum of needs and sectors in emerging economies: food security, water, natural resources, energy, supply chains, and so on.
