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 social impact. SIT4 shares the resources, infrastructure, experience and human resources of SIT, and this, alongside with a “frugal” work model, enables the quality of the services and expertise we offer to our clients at a reduced cost.
