About Scaling Pathways
 

How do social entrepreneurs and the funders who support them scale solutions to widespread problems, such as poverty and climate change?

The Innovation Investment Alliance and CASE at Duke University have partnered to create Scaling Pathways, an in-depth look at best practices and case studies for scaling impact.

The series includes:

    •    Pivoting to Impact: Diving into the critical global lessons learned and information vital to enterprises and funders trying to scale. 

    •    Case Studies: Telling the stories of three organizations, their scaling strategies, pivots, successes, and failures on the road to scale. 

    •    Thematic Studies: Detailing some best practices in financing, government partnerships, talent acquisition, pathways to scale, and data. 

What is the Innovation Investment Alliance?


The Innovation Investment Alliance (IIA) is a funding and learning partnership between the Skoll Foundation and USAID’s Global Development Lab, with support from Mercy Corps, that has invested almost $50 million in eight proven, transformative social enterprises to scale their impact. Together, we aim to create systems-level change across sectors and geographies and draw out lessons on scaling that are applicable to the social enterprise community and inform the ongoing conversation on how to create sustainable impact at scale.
