The Financial Times and IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, present the second annual FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards 2015. This global programme highlights ground-breaking products and services that provide transformative, long-term solutions to key development issues, including the delivery of infrastructure, housing, energy, transportation, food/water, employment, education and health; the use of technology to empower the underserved; and efforts to reverse social and financial exclusion and environmental degradation. Special attention in 2015 is being given to privately-led public-private partnerships and other initiatives that address major structural challenges in the rapidly growing urban areas that are emerging as the key catalysts of growth in developing economies. The programme is open to all financial and non-financial private sector organisations.
For 2015, the Awards will reward innovation, impact, replicability and commercial viability on a transactional basis across the following categories.
