If we want to solve the most intractable development challenges, we can't do it alone.
The U.S. Global Development Lab (the Lab) is first and foremost a convener of great minds, talents, and capabilities using Science, Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships to change lives around the world and accelerate development results. As we launch the Lab, we are looking to create powerful networks of people and organizations that have the ability to solve global development challenges in a way that will benefit millions of people.
We’ve started with an inaugural group of Cornerstone Partners that have already made significant investments to tackle development challenges, and commit to continuing their collaboration with USAID to test and scale new models and ways of working together. While we are not currently looking to expand this group, there will be many other ways to collaborate with the Lab. If you are excited about the Lab’s vision and want to be part of this bold new approach to development, we want to hear from you!
Let us know more about how you hope to engage with us through filling out a quick survey. This information will be used by The Lab’s Office of Engagement and Communications to match skill sets, interests, and resources with Lab efforts as they become more defined.

Partner with us through the Development Innovation Accelerator (DIA). The DIA is a new collaboration instrument that will accelerate our ability to discover, test and scale game-changing innovations with partners. We are now seeking opportunities to co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate in basic and applied research and development for science, technology, innovation, and partnership and invite organizations and companies to participate with us to provide innovations and technologies that further our development goal of dramatically improving or saving the lives of over 200 million people over the next five years. Check out the PDF documents linked below to learn more on how to leverage the DIA to your organizations advantage.
