On 4 February, Sunita Grote, UNICEF Innovation’s Fund Manager spoke with Nnamdi Oranye and Victor Kgomoeswana from Power FM 98.7. UNICEF’s Innovation Fund is looking for technology startups that are developing solutions that can improve the lives of children.
The purpose of the UNICEF Innovation Fund is to invest in open source technologies for children. The Fund has raised $9 million so far and offers innovators in developing countries a pooled funding mechanism to help them take their tested projects to the next stage. The Fund brings together models of financing and methodologies used by venture capital funds and the principles of UNICEF’S award-winning Innovation Unit.
