Generate Social Good

What is SIT4?

SIT4 is SIT’s Social Innovation unit – working with a wide range of organizations to promote social goals by developing effective innovative solutions to challenging social issues.

SIT4 is a “social business” (hence its name, derived from the so-called “Fourth Sector”), meaning that it is designed to produce two bottom lines: be profitable and create a social impact. SIT4 shares the resources, infrastructure, experience and human resources of SIT. This, alongside a “frugal” work model, enables us to offer our services and expertise to clients at a reduced rate.
