BEAM – Business with Impact programme is a joint initiative of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland (MFA) and the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation (Tekes). BEAM aims to generate new, sustainable business in developing countries and to assist Finnish enterprises to address global development challenges.
Commissioned by the MFA and Tekes, the developmental evaluation of BEAM is implemented in parallel to the programme during 2015-2019.
Developmental evaluation supports innovation development, guides adaptation to emergent and dynamic realities in complex environments by continuous utilisation of evaluation results in programme management. Developmental evaluation also ensures the evaluability of the programme and provides independent information on the progress.
Mid-term review and other BEAM-reports are available at the MFA website.
