Building a social impact business requires almost exactly the same process, strategic thinking and planning for a for profit businesses. In this case they’re optimizing for two outputs- impact and financial sustainability, and not just profit. You can be a for profit, or a non profit organization, but must be able to demonstrate a social model within your business. Although technology remains a core tenant in our selection, the business model is just as important as technical expertise.

While they consider applicants on a case-by-case basis, companies should have already built and launched their core technology, and be able to demonstrate traction and/or substantial use cases. Experience in the region, and within the challenge sector, is also preferred.
