Initiative for Global Development
The Initiative for Global Development (IGD) is a non-profit organization that drives poverty reduction by catalyzing business growth and investment in the developing world. We bring together an influential network of senior executives from sector-leading companies with the interest and capacity to make strategic investments in high-need, high-potential areas of Africa. Members of our Frontier Leaders network shape global connections and frontier market insights, and promote business-driven development to create economic growth and opportunity.
Our vision is for business to realize its potential as the most powerful force for poverty reduction in the world.
Our mission is to engage corporate leaders in reducing global poverty through strategic, successful business investment.
