Session Description



GSMA Mobile for Development uses its position at the intersection of the mobile ecosystem and development sector to drive innovation in digital technology that reduces inequalities.
Within this team, the GSMA Innovation Fund has been providing equity free grant funding and technical assistance to test digital innovations with positive socio-economic or environmental impact in emerging economies, for a decade. The goal has been to de-risk innovations, generate learnings and attract further investment.
By partnering with donors such as the UK Foreign Commonwealth Development Organisation (FCDO) and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), we leverage public sector funding to catalyse digital innovation.
Join our networking session to meet a selection of our start-up innovators, over coffee and snacks. Hear about how they are driving impact with digital solutions and their journey to scale.
Philippe Bellordre, Head of the GSMA Innovation Fund, will provide an opening address about how we support digital innovations in emerging markets
