DFC’s PI2 initiative aims to bridge the financing gap for early-stage social enterprises with innovative solutions to challenges facing the developing world.

Small, early-stage businesses are forging some of the most creative and effective solutions to challenges facing the developing world today, but they often face hurdles accessing the financing needed to scale their operations.

DFC’s Portfolio for Impact and Innovation (PI2) initiative is investing up to $10 million in promising early-stage businesses which otherwise struggle to access financing due to their relative size, short track record, and novel approaches.

The initiative leverages DFC’s enhanced tools, resources, and flexibility to deliver life changing goods and services to those most in need.
