ABOUT GET YOUR IMPACT
Get Your Impact is a simple-to-use self-assessment tool to measure and compare a start-up’s socio-environmental impact in a standardised and systematic way. The tool is based on the five impact dimensions of the Impact Management ProjectTM, an internationally renowned framework to measure impact. SEIF‘s decade-long experience in supporting and assessing pan-European tech for impact ventures has gone into the development of the tool.
Accelerators, awards programs and support programs are encouraged to reach out to us if interested to use Get Your Impact as part of their scouting, review, and selection processes as a structured and professional method for assessing and managing impact. In higher education, the tool can serve as a learning tool and awareness builder to shape the mindset of future entrepreneurs.
>>venture>> is proud to partner with SEIF in its commitment to help startups understand the importance of sustainability and integrate SDGs into their business practices at an early stage. We are here to help guide the changemakers and innovators of the future, and we must all make an effort today so that we may live in a better tomorrow.
>>venture>> has chosen the Get Your Impact tool to support the startups in the selection of applicants to their annual competition which is the largest of its kind in Switzerland. In less than 30 minutes, startups can assess and improve their understanding of the socio-environmental impact potential of their business and how to improve it. The detailed impact score and tailored feedback they receive helps them to improve their impact potential! At SEIF, we are proud to support them in their journey and their commitment to integrate impact and sustainability in the competition.
