BG Bildelement

We support digital innovation ecosystems and foster digitalisation for inclusive and sustainable development worldwide, initiated by Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with a diverse network of partners.

What we do

Our approach is to identify and harness digital products, services and key technologies as well as the creation of networks with international partners to support the local innovation ecosystem.

To ensure a holistic and human-centered implementation, we are active in three pillars.
