Innovating together

Our Investment Approach

GIF invests in innovations with strong potential for social impact at scale. We define ‘innovation’ broadly to include new business models, policy practices, technologies, behavioural insights, or ways of delivering products and services that benefit poor people across the developing world: any solution that has the potential to address an important development problem more effectively than existing approaches.
