The Partnering Initiative and Ethicore will be hosting the Partnership Zone at Business Fights Poverty’s flagship Oxford Conference on 18 July, and we’re looking for the most innovative partnerships to feature during the Zone and beyond.
By bringing together the diversity of resources, thinking and approaches of business, NGOs, investors, the UN and other development actors, partnerships have the potential to generate real innovation for economic, social and environmental impact.
Innovation is a broad concept. It might mean, for example, a new product or service; a new business model or approach; the application of one technology, data or process in an unexpected other area. What innovative partnerships have in common is the ability to solve problems or generate collective value in ways that could not have been achieved by a single organisation.
If you’re involved in – or just know about – any partnership that is driving innovation, please let us know. We will be inviting a number of partnerships to join us at the innovation session in Oxford, as well as featuring examples on our websites.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of the partnership: who are the partners, what it aims to achieve, how it works and, of course, how it is innovative. If at all possible, please also include an illustrative photo. You can also tweet your innovative partnerships to @Ethicore.
We look forward to hearing from you!
