In September the four best ideas will be selected by a jury and the teams nominated winners of the Social Impact Award Switzerland 2017.
These teams will win a prize money, international recognition and active support from a SIA community of experts as well as attracting potential investors. They will also invited to participate in the SIA Summit which will take place from 1 to 3 November 2017 in Belgrade (Serbia), where winners from all participating countries (Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden and Tunisia) will meet and deepen their expertise.
Participation in the creation of a viable business model in a supportive environment will provide participants with transformative educational learning tools, concepts, entrepreneurial practices, and teamwork. This will enable them to realize their own ability to have a positive impact on society. We hope SIA will create a favourable environment for constructive synergies creation, from which feasible solutions to the great challenges of our time will emerge.
