Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation is a USAID-funded program that works with private sector partners, both globally and in coordination with USAID Missions, to scale and market such agricultural innovations for smallholder farmers. Partnering for Innovation is helping build sustainable, market-based solutions to food security challenges around the world through its 50 partnerships in 17 countries .

  • Acceleration Services

    In addition to investing financially in its partners, Partnering for Innovation also supports them with acceleration services that help strengthen their business. These services include facilitating one-on-one consultations, organizing networking and learning events, and creating resources and tools that focus on a specific business challenge.

  • Knowledge Exchange

    To strengthen and scale the work being done by its partners and others working in smallholder markets, Partnering for Innovation facilitates knowledge exchange through its online community, the AgTechXChange, as well as through events and online resources.

    With more than 1,900 members, the AgTechXChange is the only online community exclusively for people and organizations working to commercialize agricultural innovations in smallholder markets. By providing an online forum for discussion, the AgTechXChange overcomes geographical barriers to networking and connecting.

    Quarterly Tech Talks provide another opportunity to learn from other companies, NGOs, and investors working to build sustainable smallholder agricultural markets.
