Looking for data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence or similar technology solutions
The UNICEF Innovation Fund is looking to make up to 100K equity-free investments to provide early stage (seed) finance to for-profit technology start-ups that have the potential to benefit humanity.
If you’ve got a start-up registered in one of UNICEF’s programme countries and have a working, open source prototype (or you are willing to make it open-source) showing promising results, the UNICEF Innovation Fund is looking for you.
What we’re looking for
We are currently looking to invest in companies that are using data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence or similar technologies to build solutions that respond to the following questions:
- Are you using new sources of data such as satellite imagery or social media and applying data science or artificial intelligence techniques to understand the physical world that we live in?
- Applying deep learning to analyze satellite imagery and automatically map infrastructures such as schools, health centres, roads or cell towers?
- Using digital footprints from sources like social media or mobility patterns to understand public spaces?
