Social Impact Incentives (SIINC)

SIINC BIG when creating impact

Social Impact Incentives (SIINC) is a solution enabling high-impact social enterprises to improve profitability and reach scale. With SIINC, social enterprises are empowered to raise large amounts of investment and to grow sustainably while creating positive social impact at scale. Watch the introductory video or read our white paper to experience how it works.

SIINC was co-created by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and Roots of Impact.

Why SIINC is relevant for you

….as an enterprise: SIINC makes it possible to scale without compromising on your social mission. The SIINC payments act as an additional revenue stream and directly improve your P&L. You also enjoy full flexibility about the type and source of investment you bring in.

….as an investor: SIINC improves the risk/return profile of social enterprises by paying them for their impact. The enterprise will be able to continue or even accelerate its efforts to generate deep impact while offering sufficient returns.

….as a donor: SIINC offers great value since an outcome-funder only pays for impact that is actually generated. The outcome funder works with the social enterprise to decide on the desired outcomes and on how much he or she pays for each. If SIINC is used properly, the enterprise will continue to generate positive impact long after the SIINC payments have finished.
