WHAT THE MIF IS DOING
Our goal is to build the Knowledge Economy and promote job creation by powering inclusive tech-driven enterprise growth. To do so we are working in three mutually reinforcing focus areas:
- Strengthening the ecosystem for entrepreneurship and innovation, including social entrepreneurship. The MIF works to fortify and connect key ecosystem actors in areas such as impact investing, open innovation, corporate venturing for impact, and enterprise acceleration and incubation.
- Testing, investing in, and scaling tech-driven enterprises that solve social, economic and environmental problems with particular focus in sectors such as EduTech, HealthTech, and FinTech; and building SME capacity to adopt and deliver technology and knowledge-intensive products and services.
- Building a competitive and entrepreneurial workforce, by developing tech skills in areas such as coding and design, by up-skilling employees to perform knowledge economy jobs, and by building entrepreneurial skills for the digital economy.
