Global Innovation Fund

The Global Innovation Fund (GIF) invests in social innovations that aim to improve the lives and opportunities of millions of people in the developing world. Through grants and risk capital, they support breakthrough solutions to global development challenges from social enterprises, for-profit firms, non-profit organizations, researchers, and government agencies.

GIF provides funding at 3 stages: pilot, test and scale – and is open to ideas from any sector and any country provided that the innovation targets those living on under $5, or preferably, under $2 a day.

GIF offers grants, loans (including convertible debt), and equity investments ranging from £30,000 to £10 million. Applicants are asked to indicate their preferred capital type and amount on their application.
