Report Extract

Emerging markets around the world account for well over half of the world’s population and, by 2025, consumption of £23 trillion annually. For the right companies with appropriate, affordable and scalable products or services, the chance to build a business while delivering social impact is both motivating and exciting.

All it takes is creativity, tenacity, and, we think, a helping hand. This guide will help.

It is for entrepreneurs, start-ups, researchers and anyone else with strong ideas for commercial innovations that can help to solve pressing challenges in developing countries.

By describing the process of successfully implementing commercial ideas in developing countries through case studies, we want to inspire you to apply for funding from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Demonstrate Impact competition.

If you are interested in learning more about the GCRF Demonstrate Impact competition, you can also register for one of our competition briefing events taking place on the 10th March in London, and 12th March in Edinburgh. The first event will also be webcast.
