Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation – Round 4 open
Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation released its fourth request for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) to commercialize agricultural technologies in smallholder markets in Feed the Future countries.
Partnering for Innovation
Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation is a USAID funded program focused on finding and commercializing agricultural technologies that can help improve the lives of smallholder farmers. The program helps companies build profitable, sustainable businesses by investing in them to launch the most effective technologies into new smallholder markets.
Request for Expressions of Interest
Partnering for Innovation seeks Expressions of Interest (EOI) from private-sector organizations who are introducing proven technologies into new markets in Feed the Future countries. The program funds technologies that are cost-effective, can be commercially successful, and can reach smallholder farmers, particularly women. These investments have a budget range of $200,000 to $400,000 with a 12 to 18 month timeline. Final budgets and activity length will be negotiated prior to award. Applications can be submitted until April 13, 2015.
