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.
GIF is a non-profit, impact-first investment fund headquartered in London with offices in Washington, D.C. and Nairobi. GIF invests in the development, rigorous testing, and scaling up of new products, services, business process, or policy reforms that are more cost-effective than current practice and targeted at improving the lives of the world’s poorest people.
Through their grants and risk capital, GIF supports breakthrough solutions from for-profit firms, non-profit organisations, researchers, and government agencies to maximise their impact and catalyse meaningful change. Because the best ideas for solving some of the world’s most critical development problems can come from anyone, anywhere, GIF provides an open window to receive innovative ideas and assess whether they are right for GIF investment.
