Each year, the B4IG Incubator accompanies selected projects developed and implemented by our member organizations as they test and scale novel approaches to inclusive growth.
Member organizations propose novel project(s) that they are developing for entrance to the Incubator. The Incubator’s yearly cohort is selected from these applications. Each selected project then benefits from the operational and analytical support furnished by the Incubator.
The Incubator program focuses on two axes. First, it assists the project leaders as they design and deploy their solutions, also focusing on the metrics by which they will be guided, notably thanks to the expertise and analyses of the OECD. Simultaneously, it ensures that knowledge and resources are shared among the various Incubator programs to facilitate effective partnerships for inclusive growth.
The Incubator’s goal is to assist in the discovery of specific local solutions that can then be more broadly applied across both geographies and industries. The Incubator’s first cohort (2020) includes 12 projects based in Mexico, Burkina Faso, the United Kingdom, Germany, Ecuador, France, India, and more; the projects involve a variety of industries, from telemedicine and insurance, from agriculture to clean energy.
