The hype of blockchain for underserved populations in emerging markets has not yet been matched by the reality in these regions. While some use cases have emerged, most lack a clear baseline and measurable outcomes to build the business and impact case for these technologies.

We aim to close this ‘hype gap’ by identifying and supporting real world use cases for web3 to increase financial inclusion and climate resilience, to build the evidence base.

Mercy Corps Ventures (MCV) is looking for startups and organizations operating in Africa, South and Southeast Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Pacific Islands, and Western Balkans, who innovatively apply Web3 and blockchain technology to build solutions for underserved populations.

Priority focus areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Access to credit for underbanked users
  • Nature-based solutions for climate resilience 
  • Humanitarian aid delivery 
  • Transparent supply chains 
  • Crypto-enabled wallets for underserved users

The Fund will provide equity-free grants of up to $100,000 to ten eligible startups.

Alongside capital, MCV will also provide mentorship, impact measurement advisory, access to partnership opportunities, knowledge exchange, and brand exposure.

I have consulted many websites, and later I discovered your blog, which is the style I hope to need. thank you very much. Would you allow me to use your blog style as a reference? thank you!
