Join the UNFPA Innovations to Empower Women and Girls Challenge (the Challenge) that will support women-centered innovations. It aims to further develop and position to scale innovative solutions that can help disrupt inequalities and advance the empowerment of women and girls in all their diversity.
The Challenge will provide a mentorship scheme to increase the potential/capabilities of the awardees to scale up innovations across developing countries. It will thus create and nurture an ecosystem of innovators, mentors, and key stakeholders who will then, in turn, support the solutions and their sustainability models.

The proposed innovation should be contributing to one of the following challenges:
ending unmet need for family planning
ending preventable maternal deaths
also, ending gender-based violence and harmful practices
The Company must have already tested a prototype, proof of concept, and have a minimum viable product (MVP) that has been piloted and is ready to be positioned to scale. The MVP must belong to the submitting organization.
The innovative solution must have a viable pathway to scale and sustainability via the market or public sector
