Almost a $1 billion/year is invested into a rapidly growing and increasingly crowded field of social entrepreneurs who are developing innovations for the poor.

Most social innovations do not achieve widespread adoption, either because the problem being solved was not well understood, the solution developed was not designed for scalability or the entrepreneur was not able to connect with relevant local decision makers and networks.

This initiative will leverage UNICEF’s expertise, reach, and evidence base to help funders 1. vet early stage social investments, 2. support the most promising social entrepreneurs and 3. achieve scale when successful.
