About GDI: The Global Development Incubator (GDI) is an organization that
builds startups, incubates partnerships, and strengthens existing organizations
for social impact around the world. We believe in breaking down silos, working
across issues from agriculture to health to finance, and everywhere in between.
We are different from typical consultants and play a mix of the strategist and
implementer role to spin out new organizations and partnerships over 2-3 years. 

Our work with
initiatives usually includes a combination of strategic, programmatic, and operational
support, and we’re always thinking about an organization’s endgame. As we
partner with innovators to deliver social impact at scale, GDI typically
focuses on four phases of work: 1) analysis and understanding of the root
problem and potential solutions; 2) design and strategic direction setting; 3)
pilot, launch, and hands-on implementation support; and 4) equipping
initiatives to stand alone in their next phase of growth. 

We are always
exploring new challenges and opportunities, but our current focus areas range
from the intersection of novel financing solutions and information technology
for agriculture to improve lives and livelihoods in rural communities; to
cross-sectoral approaches to addressing the root causes and complex
interdependencies that stand in the way of healthy communities. Learn more
