Creating Markets, Creating Opportunities

IFC — a member of the World Bank Group — is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. We work in more than 100 countries, using our capital, expertise, and influence to create markets and opportunities in developing countries.

In fiscal year 2023, IFC committed a record $43.7 billion to private companies and financial institutions in developing countries, leveraging the power of the private sector to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity as economies grapple with the impacts of global compounding crises. In the disruptive technology space, to date, IFC has committed over $2.7 billion in venture capital through investments in startups, VC funds, seed funds, and accelerators. Furthermore, IFC Startup Catalyst invests in seed funds, accelerators, and incubators that are helping early-stage companies in emerging markets grow and become ready for later-stage investment. IFC’s work focuses on tech-driven business models in high-impact sectors, including fintech, health tech, agtech, climate tech, edtech, enterprise technology, e-logistics and mobility.
