Breakthrough Technologies. Innovative Scaling Models. Transformative Impact.
Technology plays a critical role in providing access to food, electricity, clean water and primary healthcare. We believe a better and more sustainable future for those living in poverty is possible if we bring the right technologies with the right actors to the right markets.
Disrupting scale: A new model
Our model ensures user-centered design, market adoption and a scaling infrastructure for long-term sustainability.
Tech for development: A look at impact
Since our inception in 2015, our work has contributed to alleviating poverty in India, Kenya and Nigeria.
Mobilizing the ecosystem: Advancing a technology agenda
As part of our mandate we’re committed to sharing our learnings with the technology for development ecosystem to drive collective progress in achieving the SDGs by 2030.
Our growing technology portfolio spans a breadth of areas in energy access, health enablers, food security and environmental toxicity.
The success of our model is fueled by strategically integrating partnerships along the technology lifecycle. Whether it’s in the early stages of problem identification and research or downstream in the development of the go-to-market strategy, our partners are an extension of our team.

Mapping the world's most pressing problems
The 50 Breakthroughs report serves as the technology complement to the SDGs. Grounded in rigorous analysis of each of the issues brought forward by the 2017 UN SDGs, the report identifies the 50 most critical technologies required to eradicate global poverty.
At its core, the 50 Breakthroughs is a call-to-action to the global development ecosystem to prioritize talent, resources and funding towards technologies that matter.
In response to the global COVID-19 crisis, we’re partnering with Future Factory and the Global Development Incubator to design and promote high-impact technology innovations for primary healthcare systems in low-income countries.Learn More
