innovationXchange and Frontier Innovators
innovationXchange, that hosts Frontier Innovators, is an initiative of Australian Government - Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Launched in 2015, innovationXchange aims to catalyse and support innovation across the Australian Aid program with an ambition to make innovation an intrinsic part to the delivery of the whole aid program.
In a way, this is a classic example of the changing nature of grant and development funding across the globe which has left development sector in limbo and caused a swift rearrangement in the space. A complete shift from NGO style funding to a more impact invest style funding.
