Partnering for Innovation is a USAID-funded program, implemented by Fintrac Inc., focused on identifying and commercializing agricultural technologies that can help smallholder farmers. The program helps companies build profitable, sustainable businesses by investing in them to launch the most effective technologies into new smallholder markets.
Partnering for Innovation makes grants that support market entry to commercialize an agricultural technologies in new markets. These awards provide support for early, field-based proofs of concept that attract private-sector investment for initial commercial marketing or for establishing initial distribution.
The program also works with USAID Missions to promote and scale agricultural technologies, support private sector partnerships, improve smallholder farmers' incomes, and fulfill Feed the Future goals.
