Launched by IDEO, IDEO.org and La Victoria Lab, the COVID-19 Global South Health and Livelihoods Challenge brought together innovators from over 70 countries around the world, who submitted more than 600 innovation concepts to this global call. Drawing on insights from the Challenge, we'll be hosting a virtual convening on Thursday, October 1 at 9AM PT focused on the future of urgent COVID-19 response innovation in the Global South.
This event will include:
a 90 minute panel during which attendees will hear from experts in the field
a 60 minute ideas pitch session to learn more about the top selected concepts
an open networking session to build connective tissue across a community of innovators tackling this challenge.
We hope for this convening to be both an honest reflection on the difficulty of this global pandemic and a moment to celebrate how different communities are adapting rapidly and creatively to meet their own needs, as they have historically.
Stay tuned next week for an overview of our panelists, which will include entrepreneurs and innovators, in dialogue with regional partners and representatives from the international funding ecosystem.
