14. UNICEF Innovation Fund 2021 for Startups ($100K equity-free investment)
The UNICEF Innovation Fund is looking to make up to $100K equity-free investments to provide early stage (seed) finance to for-profit technology start-ups that have the potential to benefit humanity.
If you’ve got a startup using machine learning (ML), data science (DS), or artificial intelligence (AI), registered in one of UNICEF’s programme countries, and have a working, open source prototype (or you are willing to make it open source) showing promising results, the UNICEF Innovation Fund is looking for you.
Nearly 4 billion people (29% of whom are 18-24 year-olds) remain unconnected from the internet, and by extension unconnected to digital products that could dramatically improve their lives. COVID-19 has put a spotlight on the digital divide within, between countries and regions, making access to digital platforms and services a key priority.
The world is facing a learning crisis. More children and young people than ever before are enrolled in school – but 250 million remain out of school and are not developing the skills they need to break out of poverty. Quality of and access to education and skills-development opportunities are limited – especially for the most marginalized children and young people, including girls, and children with disabilities.
The pandemic has also further exacerbated inequities in access to public health and healthcare services for children and adolescents. While children appear to be largely spared the direct mortality impacts of COVID-19, the indirect effects stemming from strained health systems threaten to reverse decades of progress. Now more than ever, we need to accelerate impact in health, including childhood immunizations, to make sure children and adolescents survive and thrive and reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The crisis is also disproportionately affecting young people’s mental health, their well-being, and their future.
The growth of technology and online tools means we can deliver learning, health and psycho-social support opportunities anywhere, at any time.
What we’re looking for
We are currently looking to invest in companies that are using machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), or data science (DS) technologies to build software solutions that respond to the following questions:
Area 1: Are you creating platforms for personalized services? Or are you providing tools to automate processes and decision-making?
- Adaptive learning solutions that can support self-learning and/or enable teachers to offer greater personalization of learning
- Online solutions using AI for personalizing or adapting content and information in multiple languages
- AI-powered voice assistants and chatbots to provide personalized help and guidance, for children, teachers and healthcare workers (including community health workers and including mental health and psychosocial well-being)
- Software that can review trends, identify mistakes and assess performance, including but not limited to health diagnostics, automated assessments, etc.
- Tools for converting content into universally designed/accessible formats, such as text to speech; image to speech including predictive structure (AAC); and sign language avatars
Area 2: Are you building tools to optimize system performance for greater access to and delivery of services? Or are you trying to use data science, machine learning or artificial intelligence techniques to generate new insights from data?
- Applying optimization techniques to improve service delivery (health), resource allocation (connectivity) or content delivery (education)
- Using ML/AI to understand the relationships between different variables that impact development indicators (i.e. learning, socio-economic, health, or infrastructure).
- Predictive analysis to understand changes in the world such as new patterns, risk factors or contributors to pathologies and adverse outcomes, or diagnostic protocols and models
- Using Natural Language Processing (NLP) or similar techniques to analyze large amounts of text, for example job market trends or predict efficiency in supply tracking and allocation of resources
Area 3: Are you generating and curating data for any of the above?
- Gathering and combining existing data from different sources
- Generating new data through field data collection, crowdsourcing or social network platforms
- Building solutions to measure and monitor delivery of services (e.g. in health, education)
- Using novel approaches to generate, as well as to validate, large amounts of training data
UNICEF’s Innovation Fund has been specifically designed to finance early stage, Open Source technology that can benefit children. The core motivation of the Innovation Fund is to identify “clusters” or portfolios of initiatives around emerging technology – so that UNICEF can both share markets and also learn about and guide these technologies to benefit children. We invest in solutions clusters around $100 billion industries in frontier technology spaces, such as: blockchain, virtual and augmented reality, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
The Innovation Fund is particularly seeking solutions that are:
- Addressing challenges to accelerate results for children.
- Optimized for low-resource environments (e.g. low connectivity, mobile access).
- Focus on reducing, rather than widening, inequalities.
- Able to deliver in multiple languages, including smaller languages.
15. Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE)
Lagos—The U.S. Consulate General in Lagos and Ascend Studios Foundation have partnered to implement the 2021 Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE), a U.S. Government initiative that supports women entrepreneurs around the world, now in its third year.
200 participants will be selected from the 17 states of southern Nigeria for the 2021 cohort. To support the comprehensive rehabilitation and reintegration of returned migrants, 50 female returnees will also take part in the program.
As part of this highly competitive entrepreneurship program, participants who graduate from the AWE gain automatic membership to the U.S. government exchange alumni community, providing access to a vast network of like-minded and highly regarded professionals across the country.
Women’s meaningful economic participation is integral to achieving greater security and stability around the world. The AWE initiative is a great opportunity for Nigerian women entrepreneurs to gain university-level business and management training, strengthen their networks, and grow sustainable businesses.
“Women have a key role to play in Nigeria’s future prosperity,” U.S. Consulate Public Affairs Officer Stephen Ibelli said. “As we have seen time and time again, when women do better, countries do better, communities do better, and families do better.”
Leading local business leaders will help facilitate the intensive program scheduled to run from July to September 2021. In addition, participants will receive access to DreamBuilder, a blended business training course developed through a partnership between Arizona State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management and global copper mining company Freeport-McMoRan.
Chief Executive Officer of Ascend Studios Foundation, Ms. Inya Lawal, said “We are delighted that the U.S. Consulate General in Lagos has partnered with us to implement this program, the largest yet. AWE is a transformative initiative that is helping women in Nigeria build and sustain their businesses; the opportunities that come from this program are immense.”
