Modeled after the World Bank’s Innovation Marketplace (1998), the 2016 Innovation Marketplace is organized by the GeorgetownDevelopment Initiative and will be held in April 2017 at Georgetown University (Washington D.C.). Innovation Marketplace is an international development case competition that seeks to generate deeper conversations about the development challenges facing our global community, but more importantly to encourage the ideation of solutions to address such challenges.

8 finalist teams will be selected and invited to Georgetown University in April 2017 to present their proposal to a panel of development practitioners. Grand champions will be awarded the opportunity to implement their idea through GDI amongst other prizes.
