Funding call : Development Innovation ventures
Do you have an idea that can solve peoples’ problems, such as end hunger, malnutrition and poverty eradication? Are you willing to transform those bright ideas into global solutions?
If yes, the opportunity has arisen with the Development Innovation Ventures (DIV), the USAID’s open innovation program that tests and scales creative solutions to any global development challenge.
DIV recognized that innovative solutions come in many forms - whether a product, technology, service, or application of a creative business and delivery model. DIV is an open door to USAID - anyone, anywhere can apply at any time.
In return, DIV is offering tiered grant funding to test new ideas, build evidence of what works and upscale the idea into a global solution. Solutions should demonstrate an evidence of impact, cost-effectiveness, and a viable pathway to scale and sustainability.
Proposals are accepted year-round across three stages, from any type of organization, in any country in which USAID operates.
- Stage 1: Proof of Concept (Up to $200,000 - up to 3 years)
- Stage 2: Testing and Positioning for Scale ($200,000 to $1,500,000 - up to 3 years)
- Stage 3: Scaling ($1,500,000 to $5,000,000 - up to 5 years)
