Social Impact Innovation Alliance (SIIA) is a joined force of visionary projects and organizations dedicated to harnessing the power of innovation for positive social change. For more information about the Alliance please visit this page.
|To new members: Kambria is an open innovation platform for Deep Tech (AI, Robotics, Blockchain, VR/AR, IoT…). with the mission to shape the future of technology where technology is open and contributes more to society.
One of our initiatives is Kambria DAOs, a way for the community to co-own technology. We are launching 3 DAOs:
- Pet Care Robot DAO as a Tech Savvy Community Takes Care Of Pets;
- Ocean Cleanup Robot DAO to Accelerate Towards The Circular Economy;
- Mine Clearing Robot DAO as a Community Action to Heal the Earth.
SIIA unites innovative projects for positive social change, like Kambria DAOs, and welcomes new members like Einsteinium, FARI, TAO Climate, and Vietnam Silicon Valley Foundation. Join us in shaping social impact innovations!

The Einsteinium Foundation's overarching mission is to utilize emerging blockchain technology to generate funds for scientific research as a philanthropic organization.
There are two ways this is accomplished.
- The first is through a mining tax (collected when new EMC2 are minted) which creates a pool of funds to provide grants to applicants.
- The second is by maintaining a currency (Einsteinium or EMC2) which allows for a transparent and trustful way to support specific causes. In this regard, the Einsteinium coin is designed to reduce waste and redundancy where it is needed most.
Einsteinium also plans to launch a community-driven crowdfunding process for projects. This enables raising awareness for more projects and causes, for Einsteinium coin, and for the sponsors. This provides additional benefits by promoting cryptocurrency to a wider audience.
So far the Foundation has contributed over 16M of EMC2 coins for science projects.
FARI is an independent non-profit initiative in the field of artificial intelligence under the guidance of two Brussels universities: the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB). It gathers the interdisciplinary expertise of 10 research groups working on AI, data, robotics, social sciences, ethics, and law. The initiative aims to help citizens, politicians, businesses and non-profit organizations address contemporary challenges in the Brussels-Capital region, Belgium and Europe.
FARI brings together leading and future researchers on projects that serve the city in the field of AI (explainable and reliable), data (open), and robotics (human-centered). It also builds bridges with governments, industry, and citizens to promote sustainable AI, with a focus on urban and public priority areas such as health, mobility, climate, and energy, and a participatory and inclusive society.
About TAO Climate
TAO Climate's overarching mission is to stop climate change by removing CO2 from the air at scale and using the captured carbon to build a better, sustainable world.
There are several key strategies we employ to achieve this ambitious goal:
- Building and deploying our software platform that connects carbon value creators with market demand.
- Leveraging industrial hemp as the most effective and scalable Nature-based Solution, building a global network of hemp growers and makers.
- Educating about the benefits of hemp to climate and industry, including construction.
- Changing policy at national and international levels.
By revolutionizing how we remove carbon from the atmosphere and promoting the adoption of sustainable practices, TAO Climate is dedicated to building a brighter future for our planet and generations to come.
About Vietnam Silicon Valley Foundation
Vietnam Silicon Valley (VSV) is a government-backed initiative launched in 2013 to create a supportive environment for startups in Vietnam. The Ministry of Science and Technology developed the initiative, which is executed by the VSV Team.
VSV has transformed Vietnam into a thriving startup hub by offering funding, mentorship, and resources. With a supportive ecosystem, talented entrepreneurs, and a commitment to innovation, Vietnam is on track to become an essential tech and innovation hub in Southeast Asia. Under the VSV flagship, there are 2 key areas of activities: VSV Capital and VSV Foundation.
VSV Foundation is an Impact Investment-focused VC with a mission to drive impactful innovation in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. We’re eager to collaborate with tech partners through initiatives like hackathons and startup competitions…
