2016 UNICEF Innovation Fund , Zambians



Deadline: February 26, 2016
UNICEF invites expressions of interest to receive funding that will be made available through the UNICEF Innovation Fund. The purpose of the UNICEF Innovation Fund is to invest in open source technologies for children.
The Fund has raised $9 million so far and offers innovators in developing countries a pooled funding mechanism to help them take their tested projects to the next stage. The Fund brings together models of financing and methodologies used by venture capital funds and the principles of UNICEF’S award-winning Innovation Unit.
Thematic Areas
Projects funded need to increase the ability of children to access information and to increase opportunity and choice.  Specifically, projects should align with one of UNICEF Innovation’s three portfolio areas:
  1. Products for youth under 25
  2. Real-time information for decision-making
  3. Infrastructure to increase access to services and information
