Why hosting SIA in your country?

Social Impact Award is the largest community for early-stage social innovators under 30 years in the world. It impacts, shapes and develops the social entrepreneurship environment you act in, but also brings benefits to your organization. Some of the various advantages of being part of the SIA community as a Host are:

  1. Business Development: SIA is a very versatile tool to broaden and deepen the funding base of your organization
  2. Codified Program Design: With Social Impact Award you access an entire universe of codified interventions – offline and online
  3. Attracting Young Talent: SIA is a low-barrier entry into the field of Social Entrepreneurship for young talents from all over your country
  4. International Community: Become part of a collaborative community of leading social entrepreneurship support organizations
  5. Ideal Tool for Ecosystem Building: Social Impact Award is international recognized to be an ideal tool to build up a community around Social Entrepreneurship
  6. Support for Employees: Every person – not matter if volunteer or employee – working on the implementation of SIA can enjoy our individual one-on-one support on an instant basis

Is your organization suitable to host SIA?

We encourage all interested organizations to contact us and find out if you could become a SIA Host. Due to the fact though that SIA is a fairly complex, full-year program that involves multiple stakeholders and a lot of commitment, we are looking looking especially for organizations that meet the criteria below. We also will evaluate your organization on those criteria during the process of joingin the SIA community:

  1. Mission fit with SIA: impact-driven, believing in the innovative potential of youth, focus on both entrepreneurship and impact
  2. Connectivity in the national ecosystems: strongly embedded in the national ecosystems around social entrepreneurship and/or youth empowerment
  3. Implementation capacity: Experience and human resources to run a relatively complex full-year program with multiple stakeholders
  4. Fundraising capacity: Experience, knowledge and network that is necessary to fund SIA’s national costs (funding partners can be foundations, corporations and/or public institutions)
