The GSMA Innovation Team is a unit set up in early 2020 to manage all Innovation Fund activities within GSMA.

The Innovation Fund Team is a centre of excellence that ensures that the best grant projects are managed to the benefits of the grantees, whilst complying with strong GSMA compliance and risk management processes.
