Win the Award

Our internationally recognized award will give your venture exposure, partnership opportunities, and pre-seed funding.

The Social Impact Award gives high-potential ventures pre-seed funding to build their venture and access to our yearly Summit, an international gathering of promising social entrepreneurs from all SIA countries. The award also provides exposure both nationally and internationally, and serves as proof of reliability to potential funding partners.

In 2011, we also created the Community Award, with the aim of rewarding fan-favorite ventures. The ventures who receive the most votes in their country receive this award, giving them international exposure and a variety of different rewards.

Incubation participants are automatically considered as potential recipients of the Social Impact Award. Only participants who go through our incubation journey can win the award.
