The Social Innovation Tournament recognises and supports the best European social entrepreneurs. It is organised in a different country every year to reward and sponsor European entrepreneurs whose primary purpose is to generate a social, ethical or environmental impact.

A Jury, composed of specialists from the academic and business worlds, identifies and nominates the winners. All projects  compete for the General Category and Special Category 1st and 2nd Prizes of EUR 50 000 and EUR 20 000 respectively, and a six month residency at IRIS, the social incubator set up in Amarante, Portugal. The winner of the first Prize in General Category also benefits from an EY mentoring voucher offered by EY Transaction Advisory Services in Belgium.To assist the further development of participating projects, the Jury may also decide to award projects presented at the Final Event, whether Prize winners or not, mentoring vouchers entitling the project team to benefit from subsequent coaching/mentoring services. Two projects can attend the INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Programme in Fontainebleau, France.
