To help social entrepreneurs mobilise resources and scale their impact to change the world, the EIB Institute organises annually the SIT (Social Innovators and Transformers) Impact Bootcamp.

This full-time executive training programme includes lectures on social innovation, scaling models, negotiations, fundraising and effective communications, and intensive pitching training sessions, closing with an Impact Ventures Fair to showcase projects to potential investors and build bridges for future investment deals.

It is directed at teams from initiatives/projects/ventures that have an innovative solution to a societal problem, which are already post-launch, have some degree of validation of their social innovation and are embarking on or undergoing a scaling process to maximise their impact.

The participants are selected from among the finalists in the EIB Institute’s SIT (Social Innovation Tournament) and other social entrepreneurs.
