DGIx Digital & Green Innovation Accelerator Pitch Event

The DGIx is a programme by the #SmartDevelopmentFund (#SDF) and the WFP Innovation Accelerator, and powered by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the European Union (EU).

DGIx selected, among +400 applications, 10 high-impact digital ventures and projects solving some of the most pressing environmental challenges in selected countries. The aim of the programme is to provide financial, technical, and methodological support to the DGIx laureates. Together with the best and brightest minds globally, we will be able to leverage green-digital synergies to ultimately improve the lives of vulnerable communities.

At the event, you will have the opportunity to get to know 10 inspiring ventures that will present their early-stage, scalable, cutting-edge solutions, and will also have the chance to network with cross-sector leaders in the green digital space, including representatives from GIZ, WFP, and the EU.
