Scale X Design Challenge

Scale X Design 2017 Challenge

Thank you for joining us in celebrating the first cohort of CARE’s Scale X Design Accelerator in New York City on Thursday, January 26, 2017!


CARE concluded the inaugural experience in January, bringing together some of the boldest thinkers and most passionate actors in the social innovation space.


Meet The Winners:

Fifteen teams representing 30 countries initially pitched their ideas to the Atlanta community – home to CARE's global headquarters – where voters determined which five teams would advance to New York to compete for one of three $150,000 grants to help take their innovation to scale. Many of you, along with expert judges, determined the winners. We're delighted to introduce them:

Mobile Application to Secure Tenure (MAST) is an app that helps people map and claim the title to their land faster, cheaper and more reliably than ever before in Tanzania. Watch the full pitch.

Krishi Utsho is a network of small shops providing better agricultural supplies at better prices so farmers, particularly women, can grow more food in rural Bangladesh. Watch the full pitch.

CHAT! uses technology to promote health education among women factory workers in urban Cambodia. Watch the full pitch.
