Our 10% Approach

→ Strategic Development Areas (SDAs)  

Strategic Development Areas (SDAs) are designed to align industry accelerator interests towards clearly defined, investable, project-focused areas of shared social and economic impact.

Strategic Development Areas (SDAs) are designed to align industry accelerator interests towards clearly defined, investable, project-focused areas of shared social and economic impact. 

Within each SEA Accelerator, key opportunities for social & economic upgrading are highlighted. These Strategic Development Areas (SDAs) represent opportunities for social impact and financial return. Each SDA is designed to align accelerator interests towards clearly defined, project-focused efforts. These SDAs form the basis of our Innovation Campaigns and help set parameters to maximize social and economic upgrading. 

What is the purpose of SDAs?

Focus Effort

SDAs are designed to focus effort across the industry accelerator, connecting activities with key strategic outcomes.

Provide Evidence

Each SDA is accompanied with research, ideas for exploration and insights from members of the industry accelerator.  

Foster Partnership

When opportunity is shared and objectives are clear, the potential of partnership for collaboration is limitless.

Clarify Expectations

SDAs define objectives and clarify expectations, removing ambiguities for entrepreneurs and investors alike.
