Developing Country Inspiration

The Foundation sees a real opportunity for invention and inventors to transform the lives of the poor through the creation of new products that address basic needs and enhance livelihoods in the developing world. Therefore, we work with developing country partners to promote the opportunity to become an inventor by raising the public profile and image of inventors and inventions. This work strengthens the ecosystem that will spark the inventive and entrepreneurial spirit, and expand the pipeline of future inventors that can address the needs of the poor.

Core components of this work include partnerships in developing countries to support programs and activities that celebrate inventors and invention, and excite people to become new inventors.
