About SENStation

SENStation is an online social impact accelerator focused on social innovation and social enterprise start-ups developed by social entrepreneurs from around the world.

Social enterprise is a company designed to address a social or environmental issue, where majority of profits are reinvested back into the company. Other than charities, it is self-sustaining, and thus does charge fees for its products/ services.

Social Impact Accelerators may be broadly defined as providing start-up organizations with a series of critical inputs to help support and scale the business. These inputs may include mentorship to hone business development, technical assistance, access to funding and human capital and ongoing networking and pipeline support. A majority of these accelerators help social entrepreneurs to deliver essential goods and services to the bottom of the pyramid around the world, addressing issues such as safe drinking water, clean energy, access to healthcare, education and livelihood opportunities.
