P4G Partnership Fund

The strategic purpose of the P4G Partnership Fund is to support innovative public-private sector partnerships that address global sustainable development needs. The P4G Partnership Fund will contribute to overcoming barriers related to accessing finance by providing catalytic funding necessary to inspire the replication of more public-private sector partnerships.

P4G provides an array of facilitation supports to its partnerships. The facilitation support can help partnerships pitch their projects to investors, learn about industry best practices and network with business and government leaders. We provide P4G Partnerships with valuable visibility at global events such as the P4G Copenhagen Summit, the Clean Energy Investment Forum, the World Food Summit and World Economic Forum's Sustainable Development Impact Summit. In 2018, P4G selected 5 partnerships for direct facilitation support.

P4G holds an annual global competition to select public-private partnerships to receive start-up or scale-up funding. P4G start-up partnerships are eligible to receive up to USD 100,000 in funding. P4G scale-up partnerships are eligible to receive up to USD 1 million. In 2018, P4G funded 11 start-up partnerships. Another 8 partnerships are finalists to receive P4G scale-up funding.

P4G will accept applications for 2019 facilitation and funding support from 30th November 2018 to 15th February 2019.
