Under both SIF DEBT and SIF EQUITY, financing or investment proposals will only be eligible if the projects that organizations or companies are pursuing are accredited as Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship Initiatives (SISEI).
A SISEI is a project aimed at directly or indirectly intervening in one or several societal problems in an innovative and effective manner to generate positive social impact. SISEI ACCREDITATION consists in the acknowledgement of the submitted project as a SISEI by the Portugal Social Innovation Mission Unit (PSIMU).
PSIMU will issue a formal accreditation in a pdf format once the information submitted in this questionnaire is satisfactorily aligned with the concept of SISEI.
A thorough response to the questionnaire is required. SISEI Accreditation is the process in which the fully alignment of the venture’s mission with the SIF investment thesis is confirmed. A SISEI Accreditation will only be issued after a clear understanding of the venture’s overall operation.
