What is CARE10x?
CARE10x partners with social entrepreneurs to tackle global crises, from climate change to access to healthcare to food insecurity. Our mission is to reach last mile communities who most need innovation, but often struggle to access tools designed for their unique needs. We also know that discriminatory gender norms often exclude women from the benefits of innovation; we aim to change that.
We partner with organizations that have proven solutions for increasing the prosperity and resilience of communities that are most underserved. With each partner, we set out to:
- Co-design: We work with our partners to create gender-responsive strategies that are tailored to address the unique challenges of last mile communities – those without access to basic services – including product-market fit, marketing, sales, distribution, and finance strategies.
- Test: We test our assumptions and refine the partnership model to establish proof-of-concept.
- Scale: Leveraging CARE’s global footprint, we scale interventions that have demonstrated success.
We believe that social enterprises are a powerful force for good in the world and that organizations like CARE can play a role in enabling more sustainable and localized impact through these partnerships.
