|Overview : |
The UNDP Global Centre for Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development in partnership with the Government of Singapore and corporate partners plans to launch “Cultiv@te CoLab” – an innovation initiative that will convene start-ups, corporates, Government agencies and development partners (UN and bilateral agencies) to collaboratively design solutions for sustainability challenges in agriculture. The focus is on connecting global cutting-edge innovation and technology (growth stage start-ups, large corporates and leading research institutions) with stakeholders in developing countries that are keen to promote sustainability agriculture sector (refer to www.undp.org/around-the-world for the list of countries with UNDP presence). The Cultiv@te initiative will be implemented over the course of approximately 1.5 years and will engage 9-12 solution “client” countries on three sub-themes. Participating start-ups will be able to explore the combinatorial value of their products/services with other innovators (potentially leading to joint ventures), learn about market opportunities in emerging markets (with the potential for scaling) and gain visibility for their innovations via the largest UN development agency. To initiate the innovation process, we will call for applications from growth-stage start-ups that have market-ready solutions/innovations. Each application will be evaluated against a set of selection criteria and selected for one of three Co-Labs – groups of 10 participating start-ups. An online open innovation platform and other associated services are therefore sought to scout for and mobilise start-ups with talented innovators, mentors as well as interested corporate partners, and to effectively and efficiently facilitate the selection of the best-fit applications.
We seek services for an online open innovation platform that will help scout for and mobilise start-ups with talented innovators, mentors as well as interested corporate partners and will effectively and efficiently facilitate the selection of the best-fit applications. Advisory services w.r.t. the formulation of the innovation call, visuals, associated legal documents, FAQs, etc. are also required.
