What is the Innovation for Social Impact Partnership?
Innovation for Social Impact Partnership (ISIP) is a three-year project that aims to support promising innovative Social Enterprises (SEs) in the Philippines to collectively contribute to the achievement, acceleration, and sustainability of the SDGs. It is a project co-implemented by PhilDev Foundation (PhilDev) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), supported by the Australian Embassy in the Philippines. The project’s ultimate goal is to empower social enterprises to grow and become globally competitive—contributing to broader and inclusive economic growth in the Philippines. SEs will be provided technical support and improved capacity to access capital and attract impact investors.
ISIP is anchored on three key strategies: Entrepreneurship, Education, and Policy Agenda.
