GIZ Innovation Fund
Developing, implementing and rolling out innovative ideas for products, services and business models – that’s the objective of the GIZ Innovation Fund. The companywide ideas competition aims at enhancing our services and improving the impact of our projects, for example by using innovative digital applications.
The GIZ Innovation Fund is our corporate intrapreneurship programme launched in 2017. All employees around the world are invited every year to tackle a new challenge.
▶ We provide room, space and resources to experiment and bring innovative ideas to life.
▶ We build capacities in human-centred design, lean start-up and agile working methods.
▶ We encourage cross-departmental, cross-hierarchical collaboration and the establishments of new external partnerships.
Through four phases the two most promising teams are identified from hundreds of ideas submitted to implement their ideas in the company.
