infoDev, a multi-donor program in the World Bank Group, supports growth-oriented entrepreneurs through a global network of business incubators. We help entrepreneurs gain access to early-stage financing; facilitate mentorship and training programs; and convene entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, and other stakeholders to share knowledge and best practices.
infoDev serves its clients, partners, and the wider development community by:
- Piloting programs to accelerate the growth of agribusiness, climate technology, and digital enterprises in developing economies
- Publishing toolkits and case studies to share knowledge about business incubation, access to finance, and the characteristics of growth-oriented entrepreneurs
- Promoting inclusive strategies for women, minorities, youth, people living in extreme poverty, and other marginalized groups
infoDev was founded as an ICT-for-development research leader in 1995. Our ambitious agenda is made possible thanks to generous support by bilateral donors and private sector partners.
