What We Do
The iac Berlin was founded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung to support the development of networks for social impact. It advises foundations and other non-profit organizations on their alumni work, helps develop practical solutions in designing impact-oriented networks and initiates new forms of collaboration.
A Partner in Philanthropy
For many years, foundations have built capacity, advocated for causes, facilitated connections, and offered a wide range of support. Yet few have found ways to empower individuals or organizations beyond the direct, time-bound support of their established programs. We see networks as a key asset and powerful tool for creating impact that is effective and sustainable in the long term.
As a Think & Do tank, the iac Berlin works with foundations, academia, public institutions, and non-profit organizations to build networks for social impact and to initiate new forms of collaboration and engagement.
Building Networks That Matter
A shift towards impact-oriented networks requires approaches that are more collaborative, creative, and continuous. Together with dedicated partners, we develop such methods and work with peers to adapt and expand on them in a co-creative process.
In our role as initiators and guides, we work shoulder-to-shoulder with our partners, driven by the conviction that an orchestrated approach that harnesses the power, reach, and ideas of many can amplify the impact for everyone involved.
