About Development Innovation Ventures (DIV)

Development Innovation Ventures (DIV), part of the U.S. Global Development Lab, is USAID’s open competition supporting breakthrough solutions to the world's most intractable development challenges—interventions that could change millions of lives at a fraction of the usual cost.

DIV seeks to bring in new ideas for solving development problems - delivering more impact, for less money, with greater potential for sustainable scale. Inspired by the venture capital experience, DIV uses a tiered, evidence-based funding model to test ideas, gather evidence of what works, find failures quickly and cheaply, without long-term commitments, and continue to support only proven solutions.

DIV is focused on three elements of an innovation: rigorous evidence of impact, cost-effectiveness, and pathway to scale through the private or public sectors. DIV funds across three stages, year-round from any type of organization, in any sector and country in which USAID works:

Stage 1: Proof of Concept / Initial Testing ($25k-150k, up to 3 years)
Stage 2: Testing and Positioning for Scale ($150k-1.5m, up to 3 years)
Stage 3: Transitioning Proven Solutions to Scale ($1.5m-15m, up to 5 years)
