Grand Challenges Canada believes in empowering people who face the world’s most pressing challenges. These are the innovators we support — inventive, passionate people with the knowledge to build transformative solutions that improve and save lives.
We invest where others do not. We invest in ideas that not only apply science and technology, but also integrate social and business approaches, to generate transformative impact. We provide innovators from around the world with resources they would otherwise not have access to, such as funding and access to networks. This helps to enable them to overcome barriers and to succeed. Their bold ideas may start small, but with the right mix of resources, thorough methods for testing and scaling, we support them to have a big impact.
Together with our funders and partners, Grand Challenges Canada empowers innovators to solve challenges that are far too big for any one person or organization to tackle alone. We empower others to save and improve the lives of millions of people worldwide.
