Our mission is to help social entrepreneurs with innovations spend more time achieving theirs

GIE helps them fundraise more easily and quickly so they can spend less time on fundraising and more time on scaling their innovation. Our social entrepreneurs are those creating innovations for developing countries such as mobile-based payment systems or bio-fortified crops that are more effective, impactful and sustainable than existing solutions.

GIE also benefits funders and investors who can showcase their open funding and portfolio of innovations as well as find new innovations. Our growing database can benefit all development professionals who are interested in learning more about innovations in their sector or geography of interest.

What Can Our Data Tell You?
GIE currently has 5,000 innovations, USD 1 billion in cumulative funding and 2,500+ upcoming deals data.

This data gives us insights and trends that benefit the entire innovation industry.

We're most excited about the power of this data to answer questions such as “Which Health innovations implemented in Kenya have received the most funds?” or "Which funding organizations have funded the most innovations implemented in India?" or "Which sector has the most innovations in Ethiopia?" That’s just the beginning. As the data grows, we’ll be able to answer tougher questions such as “Which innovations are likely to scale?”.

Our platform offers digital tools and data that traditional start-up finance uses to bring efficiency, transparency and scale to the innovation market. You can see what our data can tell you on the Browse page today. Have questions you can't find answers to? Email us !
