Development Innovation Ventures at USAID is an open competition that finds, tests, and scales breakthrough solutions to the world's most intractable development challenges. DIV's model begins by seeking innovative ideas from anyone, anywhere. It then tests the most promising ideas to gather evidence of their impacts and cost-effectiveness relative to traditional approaches, and helps scale those solutions that are proven successful to sustainably reach millions of people without long-term DIV support.
