We are experts in engaging the private sector – through partnership and innovation – to meet critical global development objectives. Working across development sectors and in every geography, we focus on meeting complex challenges with innovation; collaborative, cross-sector solutions; and market-led approaches that enhance sustainability and scale.
The market is a critical element in advancing sustainable and scalable development solutions. We help development partners harness the market to extend new products, services, and solutions to communities in need. We also work with innovators and social entrepreneurs to grow their solutions and successfully navigate emerging markets.
Effective cross-sector partnerships amplify impact. When done right, partnerships can dramatically boost scale, efficiency, and sustainability; and they inject private sector innovation into traditional development programming. We work across the partnership lifecycle, helping our clients forge new, collaborative solutions to critical development challenges.
To move forward with impact, we need new partners and new perspectives. We help our clients deploy open innovation to crowdsource fresh ideas and business models from global and local innovators. We then provide a suite of partnership, finance, and acceleration services to help up-and-coming entrepreneurs succeed and scale.
For many of today's biggest challenges, catalytic finance is a critical piece of the puzzle. We help our clients craft finance and investment strategy; source high-impact funding opportunities; and identify partners to co-invest in piloting, scaling, and sustaining bold new solutions.
We specialize in pragmatic MEL design, responsive to the needs and realities of our clients. We combine efficient performance monitoring with industry-leading approaches for evaluation and data analysis. Our objective is to provide our clients with truly actionable insights to inform better, more effective development programming.
