It will connect entrepreneurs to over 25 financiers, funders, accelerators and educators by only having to complete one application. Applicants will have potential access to funding sources such as the Catapult Microloans, YSIF, CII, Impact 8, Social Venture Zone, CSI and many more by only having to complete one application. Philanthropitch is the first organization to use the Soshent Application.
It was created by CSI to be: (i) an “all in one” application for various funders and partners so that applicants only need to fill out one application that will accessed by various funders and partners; and (ii) to connect social enterprises with the money, smarts, tools, space and people that they need to succeed and attract funding by more than one organization.
The “Soshent” Application was designed taking into consideration the questions most commonly asked by funders and capacity builders and bringing in globally accepted standards such as IRIS metrics for social impact while also allowing questions that can be more specific to the social impact areas in a particular geographic region.
