Do you have an entrepreneurial idea in your head, but you don’t know how to turn it into action?

We know, so keep reading. 🙂

What is the Social Impact Award?

The Social Impact Award is a national program that we have been implementing in Croatia for the fourth year in a row.

It consists of a series of events and workshops aimed at spreading and raising awareness of social entrepreneurship. Through the program, we teach participants the skills necessary to turn ideas into entrepreneurial ventures and provide access to mentors and professionals in the implementation of the idea. At the very end of the program, ideas are pitched in front of an expert jury, and the best three teams receive financial support with the aim of further implementing their project.

We’re leaving in 3, 2, 1…

We are starting the first phase of the project very soon, on February 28 at 5 p.m.!

The Kick-Off event will be held in an online version, and you will be able to find out all the information about the SIA program, about social entrepreneurship, and you will hear first-hand the experiences of last year’s winners.

A little more about our last year’s SIA winners

  • Frane Marušić is one of last year’s SIA 2022 winners. Frane’s O`Bus project is an innovative idea for an application that could be used to track all buses in public transport. The goal of the application is, on the one hand, to enable passengers to see where the bus is and if there are traffic jams, passengers can use their time more wisely instead of waiting at the station. On the other hand, in this way, the carrier can retain a larger number of permanent users by linking their satisfaction, time saving and quality of public transport.
  • Ema Sedlić, our winner of last year’s SIA community voting, designed the Synergy project together with her team . The idea was to create a platform for exchanging learning materials and giving instructions from students to other students

Also, after winning the SIA 2022 Croatia, Frane and Ema had the opportunity to travel to Vienna for the SIA Summit 2022. An event that brings together more than 120 young social innovators from Europe, Central Asia and East Africa and is exclusively designed for SIA winners.
