As a SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR you want to scale the impact of your solution. You offer your solution to local implementers, local adopters and funders. Your solution is innovative and based on a solid impact and business model.
As a LOCAL IMPLEMENTER you implement and further develop a solution from our portfolio in your country. You look for an entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial opportunity. You bring in your knowledge, networks and entrepreneurial drive. Or you adopt a solution that will directly benefit your organization and clients. The solution may become a new service or may even change your entire impact and business model.
As a FUNDER you support others financially in generating social impact. You look for innovative and proven solutions in your thematic area that are transfer-ready. You want to make sure that your investment generates maximum social impact.
The stages of the impact transfer cycle address all three roles, but in different ways. At the “Inspire” stage we support social entrepreneurs in showcasing their solutions and invite local implementer and funders to inspirational events. At the “Screen & Assess” stage we conduct transfer-readiness screenings with social entrepreneurs as well as local implementers. Local implementers need to be ready to adopt a solution (networks, stakeholder contacts, capacity, etc.). At the “Match” stage we bring all three roles together (including additional stakeholders) to initiate transfer projects. At the “Setup & Support” stage we focus on designing transfer strategies and projects together with the social entrepreneur and the local implementer and supporting the initial project phases, while providing transparent project monitoring & reporting to funders. At the “Learn” stage we enable exchange between and within the roles.
