Details

The FINCA Ventures Prize will launch its online application that is open to social entrepreneurs with bold visions, disruptive business models, or new products or technologies that can create meaningful impact for poor and low-income people in developing markets.

The FINCA Ventures Prize will culminate in an event in March 2024 in Washington DC. The event will feature in-person pitch presentations by the finalists to a jury and a celebration of the top winners in the categories of environment and health.

Through the FINCA Ventures Prize, FINCA also seeks to elevate awareness among donor and investor networks of the powerful potential to catalyze startups seeking to deliver impactful and scalable solutions to poor and low-income customers.

In the health category, the FINCA Ventures Prize will prioritize social entrepreneurs who are developing and scaling solutions that improve access and decrease cost for people with limited or no access to quality healthcare.

They expect a range of applications from entrepreneurs building out brick and mortar facilities, to digital platforms and medical devices that increase access to healthcare, to B2B and B2C financial solutions tailored for the healthcare sector.

In the environment category, the FINCA Ventures Prize is focused on agricultural solutions that drive climate adaptation specifically in the agriculture sector.
