Share Article

Social Entrepreneurs of Ireland have announced their 2011 awards finalists who will be competing for the chance to win a part of the $90,000 (U.S. dollars) prize fund. With the help of WizeHive’s Grant Management Software, SEI was able to keep their 200 plus applicants organized in what was their most competitive selection process yet.

Social Entrepreneurs Ireland was founded in 2004 as a program of The One Foundation, before it became an independent organization in January 2007. Social Entrepreneurs Ireland directly supports high potential social entrepreneurs by providing them with financial investment, education and networking locally, regionally and nationally throughout the island of Ireland.

To collect their 2011 Applicants’ information, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland sought the use of WizeHive’s Grant management Software. With WizeHive’s grant management system, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland was able to build custom online forms to accept applications online. Reviewers and committee members were then able to collaboratively rate, rank and review applications through the WizeHive secure network.

This year, eight finalists were chosen from over 200 applicants who are competing for a Social Entrepreneurs Ireland award worth €65,000 ($90,000 U.S. dollars.) The finalists will now embark on a three month ‘finalists program’, where they will receive funding and support to assess and develop their ideas prior to final selection of the 2011 winners in October.

"As a start-up company, we enjoy working with similar organizations and those organizations that support entrepreneurship and the any talented entrepreneurs," says WizeHive CEO, Mike Levinson. "Social Entrepreneurs Ireland is an organization that WizeHive is proud to work with, and we wish all the finalists good luck."

Since 2005, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland has provided support to 142 social entrepreneurs, directly investing over €3.7m into supporting these exceptional individuals.
