Award & Recognition

Financial Times – IFC Award for Transformational Technology


The Transformational Business Awards are open to all financial and non-financial private sector organizations. The focus is on specific projects and transactions and the impact those initiatives have or promise to have on the problems they are targeting.
While the focus of all categories is on transformational impact in developing economies, the awards are also open to projects that address similar market deficiencies in the developed world and that could be replicated in severely undersupplied regions.

The aim is to recognize, showcase and reward innovation, impact, replicability, financial viability and sustainability across a number of key development sectors. Special attention will be given to private sector-led public-private partnerships.

Projects or transactions must have passed the implementation stage and should result in measurable impact. They must be financially viable now or potentially within five years of implementation. Only initiatives that have been implemented since 2010 will be eligible.
