You will have the opportunity to meet a selection of our GSMA Innovation Fund start-ups and AgriTech cohort members:

GSMA Innovation Fund start-ups

In November 2022, the GSMA and the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office announced the launch of The GSMA Innovation Fund for Anticipatory Action. The fund will support solutions that leverage mobile digital technology to help anticipate potential humanitarian impacts and enable effective early response. We hope to announce the successful grantees of this fund during MWC Kigali and to profile their project aims and plans at the Mobile for Development stand.
