OUR ACCELERATION SYSTEMIC MODEL
Our proposal, innovative and unique in Italy, was born thanks to the expertise gained by the SocialFare teams – together with the network of excellent professionals who work with us – on several levels.
The SocialFare Startup Acceleration Team offers 7 acceleration programs, with 44 startups selected from over 700 candidates received through the FOUNDAMENTA calls, 3 millions funding were collected overall by accelerated startups, with growing results in the last year with financing rounds closed in particular by Synapta – Public Contracts.org and Wher (see the press review: www.socialfare.org/rassegnastampa).
Design Your Impact is a knowledge acceleration path designed and tested by SocialFare since 2017 – with the first experiments in the areas of Turin and Cuneo – in order to share and systemize the skills acquired by including a wider range of subjects engaged in innovative planning with a social impact: not only startups and companies ready to scale up, but also business ideas and project realities at a different stage in the path of creating a social impact company.
The 1st edition of “Accelera con SocialFare”, launched in October 2018 with the 2 calls Design Your Impact # 1 and FOUNDAMENTA # 7, ended on 6 January 2019 with 230 applications from all over the world.
The selected teams, respectively 6 projects for Design Your Impact # 1 and 4 startups for FOUNDAMENTA # 7, are welcomed on April 1, 2019 in Rinascimenti Sociali in Turin with a special Welcome Day that marks the start of the two acceleration programs.
