Mission Innovation (MI) countries commit to work closely with the private sector, which plays a vital role in bringing new technologies to market. For instance, MI has partnered with the World Economic Forum to facilitate engagement between leading businesses and MI members. MI member countries also commend the contributions being made by a group of investors through the Breakthrough Energy Coalition.

- Exchange information and build relationships with prospective businesses and investors
