This lightning talk will discuss the findings of an evaluation of Oxfam America’s Technology Incubator Fund (TIF). Since 2013, the TIF has been granting $25,000 to Oxfam program teams interested in implementing a technological solution to their programmatic problems. Projects funded have ranged from mobile data collection tools to global program monitoring systems to websites dedicated to engaging youth in political processes.

Five years and 17 grants later, we sought to understand the effectiveness of TIF as a tool in solving programmatic challenges and increasing appetite for technologies within Oxfam. The lightning talk will share what worked and what didn’t in a small fund with such ambitious goals.
