Non-financial Partnerships

We build meaningful partnerships within and across sectors. Our network of partners helps us build a robust social entrepreneurship ecosystem both locally and internationally.

The social challenges we address at Social Impact Award require deep collaboration both within and across sectors. We’re building strong partnerships that can accelerate the development of our 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.

Partnership Types

SIA is uniquely designed to enable a variety of partnership types. We are looking to build partnerships around the following objectives, as part of our strategy:

  • 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.
