Congratulations to all the 2014 Transformational Business Award winners!

The FT/IFC Transformational Business Awards, an expansion of the FT/IFC Sustainable Finance Awards, highlighted innovative, commercially viable, and replicable products and services that can create long-term, transformative solutions to development needs in areas such as infrastructure, energy, food and water, affordable housing and health. The awards also recognised the use of technology to empower the poor, initiatives to reverse environmental and social degradation, and efforts to promote gender diversity. The programme in its first year attracted 237 entries from 214 institutions in 61 countries.

The awards were presented at a special dinner in London attended by around 200 senior decision-makers in business, finance and development. Steve Rayner, James Martin Professor of Science and Civilization and Director of the Institute for Science, Innovation and Society at Oxford University, was keynote speaker at the dinner. PwC was technical advisor for the programme.
