Description


The UNICEF Venture Fund is actively seeking startups engaged in innovative projects in areas like data science, machine learning, virtual reality, blockchain, and drones, aiming to make a positive impact on vulnerable children and youth globally. Startups that meet the criteria – registered as private companies within UNICEF programme countries and working on open source technology solutions – will be considered for funding. These companies should already have a prototype with proven results from initial testing. The application process emphasizes the importance of using specific open source licenses across software, hardware, and content. Applications, which must be in English, will be reviewed in the first quarter of 2024. The Fund particularly encourages applications from female-led or founded and youth-led or co-designed startups.
