Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and Impact Hub have already successfully collaborated on a number of projects around the world in recent years and now we are taking our partnership further. We have for example jointly designed a digital transformation center in Kigali, launched the GIZ Innovation Fund and implemented the #eSkills4GIRLS initiative.

We possess complementary skills and networks in facilitating change for sustainable development. GIZ brings an extensive network of stakeholders from the private, academic and public sectors, decades of institutional credibility and experience of executing large-scale programs.

Together with Impact Hub’s network of entrepreneurs & innovators and expertise in designing, incubating and accelerating impactful innovation, our partnership has potential to address the SDGs on a global scale.

What is GIZ

With more than 50 years of experience in a wide variety of areas, including economic development and employment, energy and the environment, peace and security, governance and democracy or rural development, GIZ is a leading global service provider in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is the main commissioning party, but there is also close cooperation with the private sector, fostering successful interaction between development policy and international trade in more than 130 countries around the world.
