Virtual Focal Point Café: hosted by UNICEF Netherlands

22 April, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

ZOOM in on Public-Private Partnerships & Humanitarian Business Models!

DCHI & UNICEF Netherlands, will be hosting the second edition of our Focal Point Café Online on Wednesday the 22nd of April

The challenges that the (developing) world is facing are big and complex. The humanitarian sector cannot tackle them alone. Working together with business, knowledge institutes and the government is crucial. But how do you go about designing a partnership that is valuable for all organisations involved? What are the successful business models behind this?

We happily invite you to the second edition of the DCHI Focal point café, hosted by UNICEF. A virtual get-together of innovators from NGO’s, business, government, knowledge institutes and other walks of life. Be inspired by great examples and great failures of public-private partnerships. Learn more about the principles and techniques behind them.

In preparation for this event we invite you to bring along an example of a public-private partnership that has inspired you recently or in the past.

Do note in order to participate in this virtual event you need to download Zoom to your device
