How to get rewards for the impact you achieve

How do Social Impact Incentives (SIINC) work?

Entrepreneurs receive financial rewards for achieving social impact

As part of the B-Briddhi Programme, SIINC funding financially rewards high-impact enterprises that raise investment with time-limited premium payments of between USD 50,000 and 250,000 over a 3-year period. Funding is disbursed in phases based on verified social outcomes generated by their operations. In this way, positive impact is incentivised, and the social performance of the enterprises becomes directly linked to their profitability. This, in turn, increases enterprise attractiveness for investors, making it easier to ensure growth capital to scale. You can learn more about SIINC here.
