SEIF was founded in 2011 with the goal of professionalizing the social entrepreneurship sector and giving impact startups the support they need to grow and scale successfully.
In addition to various services around impact management, SEIF and its partners UBS, PwC Switzerland, and Julius Bär launched the SEIF Tech for Impact Awards. All impact entrepreneurs that develop or use innovative products and technologies to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals are eligible to apply. Being part of it raises international reputation for impact entrepreneurs and helps them networking with like-minded people.
