The innovation has no owner

Reducing poverty and spurring growth in developing countries requires strategic, high-value investment of scarce resources, whether they come from donors, governments, or communities. Evidence Action develops and de-risks business models for such programs that allow tens of millions of people to be served, and return on investment to be measured. We bridge the gap between rigorous research and pilot programs on the one hand, and institutionalized programs on the other. By focusing on promising approaches backed by rigorous evidence, we support programs that are measurably effective; by seeking to solve the challenge of scale, we provide cost-effective impact for many.
