Social Entrepreneurs with global development innovations

With GIE, Social Entrepreneurs spend less time on fundraising by accessing new funds so they can focus on scaling their innovations.
Close to 70% of entrepreneurs who used GIE to search for funding, said they discovered at least one new funding opportunity that was a good fit for their innovation.


Funders, partners and other innovation ecosystem players

With GIE, various ecosystem players have easier access to reliable information so they can make smarter business decisions.
Organizations are using GIE's database of 10,000+ innovations to map the innovation landscape, find "unusual suspects' or researching proprietary information about innovations such as "Verified" validations.
