The Inter-American Development Bank focuses on public policy and investments in telecommunications, media and technology by the public sector in Latin America and the Caribbean; the Multilateral Investment Fund, for its part, implements seed projects and early-stage investments to test new ways to do business and see which approaches might most effectively be scaled up.
