About the Program

As social innovation sector grows significantly, a large number of accelerating programs are being implemented and many preeminent impact startups are coming into the scene.

All social enterprises, social ventures, or startups that deal with universally accepted social problems are eligible to apply and there are no limitations with regards to the representative’s gender, origins, and age.

All those who want to make a better world through innovative business model and differentiated technology are encouraged to apply.
