Disability Innovation Live: Disability Lens Investment - mapping the sector
The potential for disability innovation as an investment opportunity, and disability inclusion as a lens on investment at large, is vast and yet globally it remains a significantly under-filled gap. During this session we'll explore the evidence behind this emerging sector - identifying opportunities for growth in disability inclusion innovation.
We will be launching and sharing the work that Briter Bridges, with GDI Hub, has undertaken to map disability innovation (assistive tech and inclusive tech) across emerging markets, sharing insights on the assistive and inclusive tech ecosystems and how these intersect with other tech sectors. We will also share highlights from our work building the case for the Disability Lens Investing opportunity and new resources and tools for philanthropic funders and investors.
