What we do

Collaborate for impact is a unique five-year-long project (2020-2025), which aims to develop a more favorable social entrepreneurship ecosystem in the region. This will be done by raising awareness,   promoting social innovation, and exchanging with various policy and decision-making stakeholders, ultimately leading to an increase in the number of social investors, social entrepreneurs, and collaboration across the region.

To achieve this, we will engage with local social investors, social entrepreneurs, social purpose organizations, impact funds, as well as partner organizations in Eastern Partnership countries and Russia, and share the knowledge and experience of its broad community. The project will also provide financial support to establish venture philanthropy funds in the region. The project will include specific program components focusing on Azerbaijan.
