  • Bespoke support from world leading experts and experienced mentors

  • A community of like minded peers from different parts of the world

  • A Summit Day, where founders will showcase their solutions and successes to philanthropists, investors, governments, and media.

  • Types of ventures they are looking for

  • They’re looking for innovative impact scale-ups.

  • Applicants should have a proven track record and be ready for their next big leap of growth.

  • In an application, they want to hear from outstanding social entrepreneurs who are bold, collaborative, self-aware and kind.

  • You should be able to demonstrate that your organisation offers a game-changing solution that’s already driving positive change.

  • And you must be able to prove that amplifying your impact can result in change on a significant scale.

    Eligibility Criteria

    They welcome applicants from anywhere in the world but suggest you look at the following base-level criteria before embarking on your application:

  • Impact-first organisation – may be
    structured as a non-profit or a for-profit.

  • Can be registered and/or operating from anywhere in the world.

  • Delivering impact within at least one of the eight Impact Areas.

  • Impact achieved to date is reaching at least 1,000 customers and/or constituents via a direct B2C model; have at least 2 partners if delivering via an indirect B2B or B2G (government) model.

  • Operating with a team of 4 or more full-time paid employees.

  • Raised at least USD100,000 in capital from any source.

  • You are not applying on behalf of a government body, grantmaking foundation, financing intermediary, or similar entities.

    Ineligibility Criteria

    The list of things 100x does not fund:

  • Ideas, blueprints, or pre-pilot stage organisations

  • For-profit companies without a clear impact focus or social mission

  • Initiatives or programmes housed within a mature, established organisation – unless the programme will be spun out, and there are plans to do so

  • Organisations that consult on behalf of clients (unless this is part of a unique model and different to traditional consulting firms).
