Last-Mile Digital Connectivity Initiative: Investor Landscape

Overview
5
This inventory was compiled by the Mobile Solutions, Technical Assistance and Research (mSTAR) project, with funding from USAID, to support the Last-Mile Connectivity Initiative. USAID's Digital Inclusion team within the Center for Digital Development commenced the Last-Mile Connectivity Initiative in 2017 to drive investment, innovation and experimentation into technologies and businesses providing connectivity to marginalized populations.

Approach and Limitations: The information provided in this inventory was identified through a landscaping search exercise completed in January 2018. The landscaping made a good faith effort to collect as complete and accurate data as possible but may remain incomplete in some instances. The search relied heavily on publicly available investment data and scraping of websites and news sources in English, it thus likely underrepresents certain types of transactions as well as investments made in non-English speaking geographies or in countries that do not publically report or under-report investments. The inventory does not represent the entire universe of all last-mile connectivity investors. Feedback or input from users is welcome at any time, please contact LMCInitiative@fhi360.org.

Inclusion in this inventory is not and should not be understood to represent an endorsement, real or implied, of any entity by USAID or the U.S. Government. This inventory is meant for informational use only as a starting point to provide users with potential contacts that could be explored depending on their areas of interest.
