    ASSYST revamps the Development Marketplace website, integrating social media features to appeal to a global audience and elicit maximum participation for its competitions. The Development Marketplace is a program of the World Bank Institute (WBI).
     
    ASSYST was contracted by WBI to create a new website to mark the 10th anniversary of the Development Marketplace. The objective was to establish the Development Marketplace in the global arena and to ensure maximum participation while capturing their target audiences. With the launch of the new site, users now have real-time visibility into updates, discussions, ideas, documents and best practices, with a global reach.
     
    The Development Marketplace is a competitive grant program administered by the WBI and funded by various partners. It identifies and funds innovative, early-stage development projects with high potential for development impact. Each year, the Development Marketplace organizes global,  regional and country competitions focused on a specific theme or sector. To date, the program has successfully selected over 1,000 finalists from more than 20,000 participants through global competitions. Among those around 220 winning entries have been selected for funding. In addition, more than 1,000 winners have also been supported under national level competitions. As it moves forward, the Development Marketplace is placing more emphasis on scalability, financial sustainability and connecting social entrepreneurs with providers of growth finance.
     
    ASSYST refurbished the website using the Drupal CMS framework. It will serve as a platform for enhancements and future developments. The revamped website will be the primary content dissemination portal for Development Marketplace competitions, ideas, contestants, partners, and jurors. The website was designed to improve the user experience with enhanced visuals and streamlined navigation. The new site is also SEO friendly.
     
    As part of the revamp, ASSYST was responsible for designing the user interface and validating the design with selected user groups. Enhancements were made in various areas and include links to stories, toolkits, and the DM blog. The website integrates Development Marketplace with Social Media channels on YouTube, Twitter, etc. for a more interactive and community oriented experience. The site is expected to expand further to include online features and collaboration, built around the same platform. 
     
     
    ASSYST is proud to be associated with the Development Marketplace and WBI in this significant initiative.
