INDUSTRY - Accounting & Financial
Prudent and Profitable
The World Economic Forum, The Government of Canada, Dalberg Global Advisors and the Global Development Incubator partnered to create a new digital platform to attract private sector investors to international development opportunities.
SEARCHING FOR THE SIGNAL
Convergence is a platform that brings together public and private capital to invest in economic, social, and environmental development in emerging and frontier markets. Our target audience is private-sector financial professionals and investors.
We developed a full brand strategy and visual identity, from name and logo to web design, launch video, and print collaterals. The key insight: private sector investors need to feel that investments in emerging markets can be prudent and profitable.
The platform was announced in Ethiopia at a World Economic Forum event on financing for international development by Canada’s Minister of International Development and has been hailed as a success by its founding partners. The platform launched in February 2016 at Davos.
