The InnovAction Challenge 2.0 is a regional innovation competition and support program aimed at empowering young social and economic entrepreneurs – especially those from Afro-descendent, Indigenous, people with disabilities, and other marginalized communities – in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The program will center on initiatives that address environmental resilience at different levels and sectors, by increasing energy efficiency and reducing emissions and/or protecting and managing natural resources. Innovations, new technologies, and nature-based solutions can help lessen negative impacts for marginalized communities.
InnovAction is a special category of the Talent and Innovation Competitions of the Americas (“TIC Americas”) a success-proven, annual program that has operated uninterruptedly since created in 2007. The InnovAction 2.0 challenge drives inclusive growth by accelerating current and new initiatives or businesses to increase the socio-economic participation of vulnerable groups. InnovAction 2.0 is organized by the Young Americas Business Trust (“YABT” or Organizer) in coordination and with sponsorship from the Inter-American Foundation (“IAF”or Co-Organizer), and assistance from national partners.
