Scale Impact

Startupper stars behind the €25,000 support program.

Scale Impact is looking for non-profit organizations or social enterprises committed to sustainable food supply or education for its 2-year program starting in the autumn, which, with the support and use of the knowledge of companies, develops them into professional, efficient impact organizations, so that they are more “resilient” in terms of finance, management and sustainability. to be In the “autumn 2022 non-profit development tender”, 6 organizations can win a grant of 25,000 euros per participant. It is important for companies to be able to work with advanced non-profit organizations, especially from the point of view of employer branding and the attraction and retention of the workforce. Scale Impact is a social enterprise that aims to connect organizations with social utility (non-profit organizations or social enterprises) with companies that want to raise the level of environmental and/or social responsibility. Partly from these corporate grants, the non-profit organization participates in a development process in which, with the help of experts, they make their operation efficient from a financial, management and sustainability point of view. As a result, they can perform their world-improving work in a more professional manner, and their positive social and environmental impact increases – the latter is called “impact” in international parlance.

“Effective tools for the mentioned areas are missing from the inventory of most domestic impact organizations”, says Gábor Lévai, co-founder of Scale Impact. “Because of this, many people do not get enough partners and income, they have difficulty following the legal requirements, they are not resilient in difficult times”. However, through the two-year development process of Scale Impact, they are prepared to be able to cooperate with companies as partners in the long term. And for the latter, this is good because they can now carry out their almost “mandatory” CSR activities together with a non-profit partner working for a cause important to them, and this has an extremely serious effect (among other things) on the employer brand value (employer branding), and can even increase the value of the brand itself . The social enterprise has just announced its “autumn 2022 non-profit development tender”, in which they are looking for impact organizations dealing with sustainable food supply and education. “The process starts with filling out a questionnaire that takes 40 minutes. During this, we get an idea of ​​what the nonprofit organization’s self-awareness is like, where its development is,” says András Harsányi, the other co-founder of Scale Impact.

Every organization that fills out the questionnaire receives written feedback, which is valuable in itself: the evaluation is a mirror that shows the direction of action, the areas to be improved, so that the organization can have a greater impact on the world and achieve its goals more efficiently. The most relevant organizations are then interviewed, which determines whether they can participate in the two-year development process worth 25,000 euros, with corporate support and the involvement of professional developers.
