Growth Stage Venture Initiative

The Growth Stage Venture Initiative supports projects in the emerging countries with both large impact and sustainable profit potential.


What is it about?

The Growth Stage Impact Ventures (GSIV) program identifies and showcases mature impact ventures from emerging countries with the catalytic potential to drive both large impact and yield sustainable profit. Tech4Impact joined UNDP, SAP and Orange in a collaborative effort to support high impact ventures worldwise. The resulting innovators and start-ups represent top-notch impact-focused entrepreneurs, showcasing some of the best investable ideas and business models to implement the SDGs. Selected ventures are invited to participate in the SDG Finance Geneva Summit, where they have the opportunity to pitch to potential partners including investors, large corporates and international organizations. 

The program has ran since 2019, supporting over 50 ventures worldwide. You can review the 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 selected ventures. For further information, please visit our dedicated project site.
