GSMA Innovation Fund for Assistive Tech is now open

With the support of the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCO), the GSMA launched the Innovation Fund for Assistive Tech which addresses barriers to digital inclusion of people with disabilities with special focus on access; affordability; relevance; knowledge and skills; and safety and security. The target groups are start-ups, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and social enterprises in Africa and Asia. Successful projects will receive an equity-free grant between £100 000 and £250 000 to scale their innovation over a 15-18 month period. Applications are open until 16 October 2020.
