SMOs for Impact and Innovation Survey 2021
This survey has been prepared by the Inter-Council Network of Provincial and Regional Councils for International Cooperation (ICN) to gather feedback from small and medium-sized organizations (SMOs) that have participated in either the Development Impact Window, the Fund for Innovation and Transformation (FIT) or the Spur Change program. The goal of this three-part survey is to better understand the experience and pitfalls of organizations that participated in one or all the above initiatives. By gathering feedback from small and medium-sized organizations we aim to propose meaningful solutions and lessons learned for future tranches of funding for SMOs.
