Launched in 2014, the Toilet Board Coalition (TBC) aims to solve the global sanitation crisis through commercial, financially sustainable solutions.
To this end, the Coalition brings together leading companies, development agencies and international organizations, entrepreneurs and NGOs. Through its 12-month gas pedal program, the Coalition creates partnerships to bring innovations to fruition.
The Toilet Board Coalition built the world’s leading Accelerator dedicated to scaling sanitation SMEs via business model design, corporate mentorship and access to investment. The Accelerator not only strengthens and scales sanitation businesses, but it also facilitates partnerships within its Members – between SMEs, corporates, NGOs, investors and governments that share a commitment to enable universal access to sanitation.
More than toilets alone, Toilet Board Coalition looks for commercially viable SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) across the sanitation economies – including innovative sanitary-ware infrastructure, products & service providers; toilet resource collection, treatment and transformation, and digital applications for sanitation and preventative healthcare.
