FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards 2021

ft/itc event


The Financial Times and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, will gather top investors, innovators, social entrepreneurs, and other thought leaders for a major online event that will combine the announcement of the winners of the 2021 FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards with high-level debate on the challenges facing the developing world as it rebuilds in the wake of the pandemic.

To reflect efforts to ensure an environmentally and socially resilient recovery, as well as the renewed global drive to address the climate emergency, this year’s awards honor those who are contributing to substantive progress in developing low-carbon urban infrastructure, smart agriculture, and sustainable supply chains and using disruptive technologies to deliver healthcare solutions and the education and skills training required for increasingly digital economies.

The 2021 Awards also recognise impact investment funds that are helping to scale up the most promising initiatives, and the innovative financial solutions being rolled out to boost female empowerment and women-led businesses in traditionally underserved sectors.
