Upon creation, each new SEA Community identifies key SDG(s) it intends to address based on the relative attributes associated with the respective region/sector.
Strategic Development Areas
Once Strategic Development Areas (SDAs) are defined within each community, impact goals are set based on specific SDG targets in focus.
After sponsorship, SEA will work with the SDA sponsor to further define key impact requirements for the SDA campaign in focus.
Once an MVP is selected, impact requirements will be defined using GIIN’s metric catalog, IRIS to ensure effective tracking of impact metrics in focus. By effectively “building in” this into the MVP product, impact becomes bottom-line to defining success.
Once the MVP has demonstrated product-market fit, SEA works with the sponsor to identify risk capital partnerships, often through the form of impact investing, who seek to scale the solution while preserving its social mission.
