Promote Innovation through empirical models:
SOIP promotes co-creativity through the smart living lab model with the engagement of OPEN actors (including governmental management agencies, enterprises, startups, investors, institutes, embassies, CSOs, local organizations, international organizations, and citizens) to address governmental, organizational and social challenges.
Emphasize addressing social challenges:
Social innovation initiatives need to emphasize human well-being and solve problems faced by enterprises and society. SOIP supports innovative startups to both ensure financial – corporate profits and address prominent social challenges in the new era, thus, attracting investors, especially in the COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 context.
Create a platform – mobilize investment for social open innovation:
SOIP expects to connect “groups affected by challenges” with “solution makers” to promote innovation in order to comprehensively solve socio-economic issues; simultaneously encourage and connect with local and international social investors.
