G20 Challenge on Inclusive Business Innovation

The G20 Challenge on Inclusive Business Innovation is a global search for businesses with innovative, scalable, and commercially viable ways of working with low-income people in developing countries.

The Group of 20 and IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, have launched this online competition to find the best examples worldwide of businesses in developing countries that provide critical goods, services, and livelihood opportunities in financially, environmentally, and socially sustainable ways to those living at the base of the pyramid (BOP), called ‘inclusive businesses’.

The G20 Challenge on Inclusive Business Innovation was launched at the G20 Leaders Summit in Cannes on November 3-4, 2011. The Challenge is now accepting pre-applications. Applications will open on December 1, 2011. Eligible businesses that have submitted a pre-application will receive access to the full application.

To find out more details about the Challenge and how to apply - please visit G20 Challenge !
