Grants and Funding. Dar Teknohama Business Incubator. All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development. What We Look For. DIV evaluates applicant solutions based on three main criteria: the cost effectiveness of the idea relative to traditional alternatives; the project’s plan for collecting rigorous evidence of success; and the solution’s proposed pathways to scale if it is proven effective.

What We Look For

Cost Effectiveness DIV seeks applications that have ideas for addressing development challenges more effectively and more cheaply. Therefore, cost analysis must be conducted in all projects; the specific approach can be determined based on the solution. Rigorous Testing Many pilots never reach scale because they do not sufficiently focus on collecting rigorous evidence of success.

Pathways to Scale Innovations are expected to eventually scale up through the private sector, the public sector, or in some cases a combination of the two, in order to reach sustainability without DIV support. Scale through the public sector. Scale through the private sector. Criteria for Selection : Innovation Prize for Africa.
