Supporting initiatives that seek to scale-up existing technological solutions with a social purpose

Welcome to the application platform for the 2016 FRIDA Scale-Ups!

The FRIDA Scale-Ups seek to strengthen social enterprises that have developed successful technological solutions by allowing them to gain scale.

Within the context of this call for projects, social enterprises include for- or not-for-profit organizations attempting to join forces and market strategies to find solutions to social problems.

In 2016, FRIDA will support two scale-up projects, providing each with a non-reimbursable fund of USD 40,000 plus supporting activities valued at an additional US$10,000. Scale-ups must be executed within a period of twelve months, which may be extended to fifteen.

To apply, click on “Join” above. To learn more about the application requirements, go to the Scale-Ups section on FRIDA's website and read the frequently asked questions.

If you have any questions, please contact the officer in charge of the program at frida@lacnic.net.

Thanks for submitting your project!

Proposals will be accepted until 23:59hs Uruguay time (UTC-3).
