To address these challenges and introduce potentially game-changing technologies to the world, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group recently launched TechEmerge in India.
The program is being implemented in partnership with the Finnish Ministry of Employment and Economy as well as the Israeli Ministry of Economy and Industry.
Described as the first of its kind, TechEmerge is a new program offering matchmaking and funding to companies with proven innovations for developing markets. The initial pilot program of TechEmerge will focus on healthcare in India.
