Announcing the GSMA Innovation Fund for Mobile Internet Adoption and Digital Inclusion Grantees

To help address this important challenge, the GSMA Innovation Fund for Mobile Internet Adoption and Digital Inclusion report was launched in April 2020 with support from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the GSMA and its members. The objective of the fund was to open up opportunities for innovative start-ups and SMEs to address the key barriers of accessibility, affordability, digital skills, and safety and security that prevent many from connecting to mobile internet.
