Attraction Once we identified our strategic issue with our clients and partners, we start mapping and attracting social entrepreneurs / innovators, potential partners such as experts and specialists in that particular field as well as social investors and donors interested in that issue together through various means such as events, publications, competitions, meetings and even parties. The goal of this stage is to create a network with shared-passion of addressing specific challenge.
Co-Design Once key partners are attracted, we facilitate a co-designing process where each of the partners bring key insights as well as collaborate on designing common solution based on shared-benefits. The collaborative design is rapidly prototyped, shared and improved continuously. CF plays critical role in coordinating such collaboration and invest in the prototype.
Finance As the prototype solution is ready for real implementation and in scaling up, we design appropriate financial instrument to finance such initiative such as through grant, loan, equity or their combination. Then, we arrange for financial support from our financial partners as well as external funding entities.
Incubation/ Training As the social innovation initiative is financed, we design appropriate monitoring, reporting and evaluation mechanism as well as providing mentorship and oversight support with specific focus on sustainability and growth both for the innovation project or social enterprise. We can also provide specific trainings on business development and planning for social enterprises.
