Background: KIE’s implementation model steers innovation growth through a stage graduation criterion, the three Stages are; Stage 1 – Proof of Concept, Stage 2 – Pilot Roll Out, Stage 3 - Scale.  
To determine an innovation’s ability to graduate from one Stage to another, an intensive analysis and assessment of innovation progress and calibration of impact expectations is carried out on the innovation; this process is referred to as Rigorous Assessment. 
To date, 9 of the 17 innovations have undergone Rigorous Assessment, of these, 4 innovations have not been recommend to graduate. 
KIE envisions that there will be approximately 10 innovations closed out and not graduating by end of May 2016 mainly due to the limited implementation window to close of project in May 2017. 
Though these innovations will not continue to benefit from the technical and financial assistance under KIE, the value created by KIE assistance should be able to steer them to: other partnerships with the private and public sector, sustainability, scale, impact and profitability.  

KIE is thus keen to implement a model that will maintain linkages with these innovations for consistent follow up and feedback on their progress.
