As a trusted advisor to governments, foundations, and bilateral and multilateral organizations, Instiglio is contributing to building a global movement for results. We are institutionalizing an outcomes mindset at a systemic level to ensure the greatest possible impact of social programs and public policies across sectors, such as education, health, employment, among others.

We aim to be instrumental in shaping expectations, raising standards, and promoting best practices of the international development community’s impact on the world. We believe we can best contribute by: (1) Continuously innovating on the existing Results-Based-Financing (RBF) and capacity-building tools, uncovering new approaches, and openly sharing our experience and insights with the development community; and (2) Improving public sector performance and delivery in low- and middle-income countries through deep strategic engagement and technical assistance.

Since our founding in 2012, playing our part in the global movement for results has required an evolution in our tools and processes, increased agility in implementation, and engagement across the systemic and sectoral levels. We have supported key stakeholders by creating tools and practices that offer more flexibility in finding solutions to intractable social problems and incorporate greater accountability for outcomes.

To that end we have: Contributed to embedding results-orientation within the National Development Plan of the Colombian government as well as within the multi-million-dollar social development programs of Morocco and Sierra Leone; Built the multi-million dollar Poverty Alleviation Outcomes Fund (PAOF), with two more funds on the way; and structured +25 Results-Based Financing (RBF) projects in over 15 Latin American, African, and South Asian countries.

Headquartered in Bogotá, Colombia, we are a team of 50+ people and representing 10+ nationalities, with offices in Kenya, Peru, and the USA. Our diverse and passionate, global team is brought together by a desire to change the status quo and to execute high-quality work with integrity, collaboration, and innovation at the core of everything we do.
