How best can we facilitate humanitarian innovation: From funding to continued engagement
Hosted by: Susanna Acland
Do you provide innovation funding?
Have you ever received funding for an innovative solution?
As the GSMA Mobile for Humanitarian Innovation Fund closes out its third round of funding, we’re reflecting on lessons learned and the opportunities we see for the sector.
In this session, we hope to inspire collaboration and share learnings from donors and grantees by double-clicking on a few key elements of our funding process while asking how we can better facilitate humanitarian innovation through these practices and more.
Key questions for discussion:
How can we make sure we are not re-inventing the wheel?
How can we collectively build capacity, even for those projects which don’t receive funding?
What engagement models work best when funding humanitarian innovation?
We welcome donors, accelerators, grantees, or anyone with an interest in humanitarian innovation to join us.
