About this event

The Outcomes Accelerator is a catalytic platform to accelerate more effective testing, scaling and the eventual mainstreaming of outcomes-based financing (OBF) approaches into the delivery of SDG impact.  The Outcomes Accelerator works with stakeholders across the outcomes-based financing ecosystem – including governments, development agencies, investors, services providers, intermediaries – to address the key barriers facing the market and unlock funding for high-quality outcomes-based financing projects.

The Outcomes Accelerator can offer flexible funding, targeted expertise, and networking to support OBF initiatives with testing, launching, and scaling.

Founding members are SECO, FCDO, and UBS Optimus Foundation who have engaged Levoca LLC to perform the day-to-day Secretariat activities of the Outcomes Accelerator. Further details on the role of the Secretariat can be found in the Application Guidance section below.

Information on the winners and finalists of the first Outcomes Accelerator Cohort is available here
