Innovation at Pact
We believe innovation is essential to solving complex development challenges. To achieve Pact’s mission of a world where everyone owns their future, we must take risks, learn from failure, and embrace creativity, collaboration and new ways of thinking and working. Pact established a dedicated innovation practice in 2013 with one goal in mind – to accelerate impact to meet our mission faster. We define innovation as the intentional application of creativity, human-centered design and local and external knowledge to improve our programs and processes in order to create new value. We create enabling environments to catalyze transformative ideas that accelerate impact.
IGNITE is an exclusive rolling seed fund to accelerate the impact of transformational product and service solutions. We’re looking for forward-thinking people with innovative ideas to solve critical development challenges. Currently open to Pact employees only. External applicants, please check back in 2018.
Deadline July 15th
