Development Innovation Ventures (DIV)

Development Innovation Ventures, housed in the U.S. Global Development Lab, is USAID's venture capital-inspired, tiered, evidence-based innovation fund that invests comparatively small amounts in relatively unproven concepts, and continues to support only those that prove they work. DIV focuses on evidence of impact, cost-effectiveness, and scale potential. It funds across 3 stages, from proof-of-concept (<$150k) to transitioning to scale (<$15M) to any organization type.
