At Global Innovation Exchange we are using the power of technology and data to enable social entrepreneurs to connect with funders, investors and others. One specific way we do this is by partnering with renowned organizations to bring social entrepreneurs opportunities such as the UN’s Call for Innovations which featured 10 innovators at the STI Forum at the UNHQ this month. Learn more about the winning innovations here. The call was hosted on the GIE platform and we helped source the innovators. Reply to this email if you are interested in exploring a similar partnership to support your call for innovations.

Another similar opportunity (closing June 30!) is our Digital Pitch Contest for a chance to win a free storytelling video about the innovation (and other prizes valued at ~$15,000). To learn more, visit the Digital Pitch Contest site. Know rockstar innovators who would be a great fit? Share this Digital Pitch Contest & Resources: Tweet This or Forward This Email!

Finally, we recently launched a Funder Directory where you can research funders in your sector or geography including reviewing their past funded innovations. Visit the Funder Directory and contact us to add your organization to the list.

If you have questions about any of the above or are interested in partnering with us, you can reply to this email.

Best, Global Innovation Exchange Team
