Solutions Market is a key activity of the Civil Society Program and part of the ADB’s Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors.
Economies not just organizations hinge on innovation today. For teams that work on making a difference to the community like the Civil Society, challenges are multidimensional and becoming more complex every day. To make a difference, it is essential to come up with solutions that stick and are inclusive!
Today, less than 5% of new ideas become products or services, let alone becoming solutions to address essential needs. Typical reasons include inability to showcase the idea, lack of partnerships between right people among others. Here is an opportunity to showcase and spot the innovative solutions out there.
Solutions Market provides an avenue for that, encourages innovative ideas and helps showcase solutions born out of such ideas. We aim to bring to light and recognize the important work bringing meaningful change to the society on a day to day basis.
