This IGL Grants Programme funds experimental research that uses RCTs to provide evidence on the best approaches to increase innovation, support high-growth entrepreneurship and accelerate business growth.
The IGL Grants programme is one of the activities of the Innovation Growth Lab, a global collaboration that develops and tests different approaches to support innovation, entrepreneurship and growth. Working together with researchers,governments and foundations around the world, IGL aims to find out what works,and what doesn't, to accelerate innovation, support entrepreneurship and help businesses grow.

- Programme delivery organisations and operators involved in entrepreneurship training and education programmes, innovation management and commercialisation, or other programmes that aim to support innovation, entrepreneurship and business growth; and who are interested in better understanding and evaluating the impact of their programmes.
