A community of young social innovators that transform intention into action.

Social Impact Award, founded in 2009, runs education and incubation programs in more than 20 countries in Europe, Africa and Asia to support early-stage social entrepreneurs in developing and implementing innovative business solutions to tackle the most important societal challenges of our times. We do so by hosting events and organizing workshops to raise awareness for social entrepreneurship, teaching the necessary skills to navigate from vague intentions to promising ventures, providing access to networks and promoting the best teams with the Social Impact Award.


Aid the development of entrepreneurial skills through inspiration and exposure to the field

Over the year 2017, we supported 1.000+ young teams to create and implement innovative social business ideas. Our past impact survey shows that 60% of projects submitted have been implemented and 35% are generating revenues 2 years after taking part in SIA.


Support participants to develop new social venture concepts

In spring 2017, we ran 220+ workshops & events for 6.000+ participants in 72 cities across 18 countries. In the future, new countries will join the program and further extend the reach our workshops have.


Connect participants with an international community of entrepreneurs,
peers and experts

Expert juries in each country evaluated ideas and gave feedback to all 791 applications submitted - because every idea counts! The best 172 venture teams took part in our summer incubation, where they brought their venture idea to live with our intense expert support.


Support the best teams with financial capital and active support through-out the year.

At the end of summer, we promoted the best 55 ventures with the Social Impact Award along with seed funding of 100.000+ EUR in total. They all gathered in November in Belgrade for the SIA Summit 2017, a 3-days-bootcamp experience, to be ready to roll out their venture and create sustainable impact.
