Exceptional mobile tech and alternative energy innovators with creative technological solutions for the underserved in emerging markets.
Innovators selected by BETA will spend six months prototyping their innovations and co-creating the new enterprises with Invested Development (ID). ID manages a successful seed-stage investment fund committed to supporting the best mobile and alternative energy technologies targeting the underserved in emerging markets. We know what works, where it’s needed and have the capacity to make it happen. All that’s missing is you. BETA will provide a stipend, office and/or lab space in Boston, legal and technical support.
STEP 1 – APPLY! We have made it as easy as possible. Simply send us an email ( describing the innovation you are working on and telling us how it will help the underserved in emerging markets.
STEP 2 – GET TO WORK: If your proposal is selected, you will work closely with ID staff to flesh out your idea and begin prototyping.
STEP 3 – GO TO MARKET: Piloting your innovation outside the lab is the only way to know if it will work in the real world.
