Global Development Incubator (GDI)
GDI takes a growth engineering approach to the creation and expansion of select ideas, organizations, and initiatives that address urgent global problems. We provide structured pathways over 2-3 years to support the achievement of critical step-changes necessary for ideas and organizations to move to the next level. We support the implementation of a strategic plan and then transition to a clear and responsible operational handoff, ensuring that the right engines for growth are built for continued transformative social impact.
GDI goes beyond traditional consulting models, capacity builders, and bureaucratic platforms to do hands-on implementation in addition to strategic and networking support. We take initiative to address real-world barriers to growth, offer a critical and independent perspective, and partner with innovators to deliver social impact at scale.
GDI is made up of a unique set of people with diverse backgrounds, skillskets, and goals. We are united by GDI's values, which we strive to put into practice with each other, our initiatives, and throughout the global development sector:
stand on integrity.
follow our curiosity.
doers, not talkers.
