Evidence Action Beta turns big ideas into real solutions for millions of people living in poverty.

We identify and pressure-test evidence-based innovations that reduce the burden of poverty, and then design and build the most cost-effective programs. We develop the partnerships, operations, and financing to roll out those programs to millions.

Borrowing from software development where ‘beta’ connotes software prior to commercial release that is still being tested to determine whether it's right for users and to find bugs, Beta ensures that new programs maximize benefit while reducing any unintended consequences before they are deployed to millions of people.
