RSVP for January 12th Technology Salon Accra
How Can Mission-Driven Organizations Access USAID Funding?
Accra, Ghana – January 12th – RSVP
Mission-driven organisations, nonprofits, start-ups and entrepreneurs need seed funding to build infrastructure and get their projects off the ground, yet they face intense competition to attract funds, and most grant making bodies have a long list of requirements before they sign off on a grant, such as evidence of impact, low overhead percentages, and measurements of scalability.
The US Global Development Lab at USAID has several potential funding opportunities that are designed for innovative mission-driving organizations, including:
- Development Innovation Ventures – seed funding for transformative ideas
- Grand Challenges for Development – contests for groundbreaking solutions
- Global Development Alliances – public-private partnerships for development
- Echoing Green – comprehensive support for emerging social entrepreneurs
Please RSVP now to join the next Technology Salon Accra and dive deeply into how local nonprofits, start-ups, and entrepreneurs can access these and other USAID funding opportunities with these key thought leaders:
- Daisy Chang – Science, Technology, Innovation, and Partnerships Advisor at USAID
- Erica Daniels – Program and Project Development Advisor at USAID
We’ll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush, but seating is limited. Please RSVP now as once we reach our 35-person capacity there will be a waiting list!

About the Technology Salon
The Technology Salon™ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:
- Technology’s impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
- Private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people – and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged.
It’s also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
