Do you have a socially or ecologically effective idea that will positively change the society? It’s that time again and you can develop your own impact idea as part of the event and workshop formats! Social Impact Awards is inviting you to submit your developed impact idea and win a ticket to the SIA incubation.
Winning a ticket to the SIA incubation massively increases the chances of success of a social or ecological idea – more than 75% of the projects are still active four years after the support. In addition, over 70% of the ideas after the SIA incubation are more innovative, more effective and more feasible than before. For almost 90% of the projects, the mentoring during the incubation was helpful and that is just one of the many types of support for the ideas. The SIA incubation worth over €20,000 already sets the course in the initial phase and forms the basis for later success.
- The 15 finalist projects receive:
- 3 Month incubation program (worth over 20.000€).
- Individual mentoring for your team & access to the expert pool.
- Professional pitch video.
- Benefits of SIA’s network & alumni community.
