Vital Capital is pleased to be participating as a supporting partner in the World Economic Forum’s Humanitarian and Resilience Investing (HRI) Initiative to support the Humanitarian Impact and Resilience Challenge. The challenge is a global call for commercially viable and scalable efforts that benefit the recovery of local communities at heightened risk or have suffered from conflict, natural disasters and forced displacement. Over one billion people live in fragile settings around the world and 274 million people will need humanitarian assistance this year. As the impact of conflict, hunger, and natural disasters grows around the world, the initiative recognizes the critical need for solutions that increase the self-reliance and resilience of affected and at-risk communities.
The challenge invites organizations, entrepreneurs and partnerships from both the private and public sectors to make their submissions by 17 November 2022. Winners of the challenge will receive mentorship and guidance from the World Economic Forum’s Humanitarian and Resilience Investing (HRI) Initiative and supporting partners—including Vital Capital—to help them become investor-ready and advance their impact.
