Innovation challenges

Who can take part in our innovation challenges?

Our innovation challenges support individuals and companies in tackling some of the most urgent obstacles to financial inclusion. We issue problem statements for challenges throughout Asia, Africa, and the Pacific.

Applicants with a solution for addressing one of our problem statements are invited to apply. Accepted applicants will enjoy financial and technical support to maximize their solution's impact.

We have different challenges suitable for ideas in various stages of development and from many countries. Read more to find a challenge to join!
