All submissions pass through an initial screening, after which they are presented to the evaluation committee.
Every last Monday of the month, the committee gets together and discusses applications' fit with the platform.
Within a week, the applicant receives a phone call with either good news or a request for further information.
In case more information is required, an application could go through a second round for deliberation.
When all goes well, the application process finished, and the social entrepreneur can join the platform!
Belgium Impact counts on an evaluation committee from a broad set of sectors, backgrounds and experiences. This way, the platform can look from multiple facets into the activities of a social enterprise.
