Developing markets currently face an unprecedented demand for capital, and there is an overwhelming supply of investors searching for opportunities in new markets. At the same time, there is a $2.5 trillion shortfall in funding for the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, with most of the burden centered in developing regions. Topl is building the technology to better connect not only investors to new emerging market opportunities but also to blend socially motivated capital with traditional investment to provide both better returns and increased impact.
By leveraging features like impact credits, a novel stablecoin, and crowed-based due diligence, their investment protocol is designed to unlock the trillions in latent demand and spur economic development where it is needed most.
Currently, Topl is deploying its protocol in India and Indonesia with additional commitments from partners in Colombia, Fiji, Rwanda, and South Africa. And recently, they were invited to join the first-ever working group on innovative finance for conflict prevention and sustaining peace, which is currently being established inside the Center on International Cooperation in NYC and includes representatives of both the World Bank and the UN as part of a group of only 15 individuals.
