Our work requires meaningful partnerships both within and across sectors. Our extensive network of partners helps us build a robust social entrepreneurship ecosystem locally and internationally.
The social challenges we address at Social Impact Award require deep collaboration both within and across sectors. We strive to build a robust network of partnerships that can accelerate the development of national social entrepreneurship ecosystems. We currently work with over 1,000 partners globally from all sectors of society, including universities, public agencies, ministries, corporates, international institutions, and many more.
SIA is uniquely designed to enable many types of partnerships. As part of our current strategy, we are looking to build partnerships around the following objectives:
Awareness Multiplication: we inspire young talent to engage with social entrepreneurship as a practical opportunity to tackle crucial societal challenges. For example, we welcome partners with similar audiences interested in cross-promotion.
Online Education: we empower young talent through carefully crafted and accessible education formats to unfold their potential as innovators and entrepreneurs. For example, if you develop interactive and high quality educational content, we offer to integrate this into our learning opportunities.
Alternative Career Opportunities: we provide participants that do not feel ready to take on the founder role with other career options in the field of social entrepreneurship. For example, if you run traineeships, we offer to promote these amongst our participants.
Alumni Support: we help build supportive ecosystems around SIA’s former finalists and winners to enable their long-term development. For example, if you run support offerings for social entrepreneurs, we offer to integrate them within our community activities.
Since 2009, we’ve impacted thousands of young agents of change in more than 25 countries.
Built by young people, for young people, our monthly newsletter shares inspiring stories from local young social entrepreneurs, tips & tricks for building a venture, and involvement opportunities to start your journey or take it to the next level. It's free, clean-cut, and shows off our best humor.
