Finding high potential

social entrepreneurs and solutions

An essential first step, is to find the social entrepreneurs and solutions that have the highest potential to develop and to meet the needs of children on a large scale.


Our search process involves casting our net as wide a possible. We employ public competitions and calls for applications, as well as headhunting through sector networks. If we cannot find existing solutions that match what we are looking for, we work to drive co-creation activities. The resulting candidates are put through an extensive assessment process, where we ask for perspectives from a variety of sectors and stakeholder groups.


Candidates with the highest potential are invited to join our accelerator, through which we deliver a series of support modules to help them to: refine their solutions and impact targets, articulate their business models, and sharpen their investor pitches. During 2017, 274 social ventures joined the accelerator.


At the end of these modules, the candidates pitch to a jury of experts, and the most promising ones are invited to join our Incubator program.

“We developed a business model and made a financial plan for the organization's work, which we did not have before, rethinking the sources of revenue for our business.”
