How to enable access to new funding sources for incubating and accelerating demand driven solutions in the humanitarian sector?
The mission for the Blended Finance Think Tank is to ensure a totally bottom-up driven demand model supplied by a scalable, flexible and sustainable financial solution.
The Think Tank is integrated by experts from the financial, Impact Investment, and humanitarian sector’s, and acts as a research hub to create a flexible model that could serve humanitarian actors in the field and complement the efforts of humanitarian agencies to provide protection whilst empowering vulnerable communities.
The main focus is to engage private sector and professional investors. The new Fintech products focus on ROI and SROI for both traditional products and new philanthropic venture capital markets. The aim of the Think Tank is also to work on ecosystems that embrace the affected populations and provide tools to empower them with sustainable solutions. As a facilitator the first step is to create a network identifying existing products and current providers.
