With innovation and impact
The power of social entrepreneurship and the social impact it creates, is at the core of the Social Initiative model. Social entrepreneurs are similar to commercial entrepreneurs, the difference being that their objective is not to maximize profits. Instead, their goal is to solve social or environmental challenges. They generally identify challenges in their own community and take action. With innovative methods, they achieve substantial impact.
In order to strengthen the social entrepreneurs, Social Initiative provides both capital and non-financial support. The financial support from our partners is a prerequisite for the social entrepreneurs to be able to develop and scale their work. The non-financial support they receive from Social Initiative is equally important. The support includes; strategic advice, strengthening impact measurement and sharing lessons learned and best practice between entrepreneurs. 90% of our social entrepreneurs have achieved or exceeded their goals. Below you will find a selection of our social entrepreneurs. Some run social enterprises, but the majority of the entrepreneurs we work with are non-profit organizations.
