  1. Login to the GIE powered STI Forum site here.
  2. Click on the user settings dropdown on the top right corner.
  3. Click on the innovation name to view your innovation profile and edit it.

(2) You want to add your innovation. Follow the below steps: 

  1. Click here to log in to the GIE powered STI Forum site and begin to add your innovation! As you type your innovation name: (a) if you see your innovation on the list, select it. This will allow you to "claim" it and start managing the profile.  (b) If you don't see your innovation on the list, finish typing the name and select the countries where you've already implemented the innovation. If you have trouble with this, email us.  
  2. You'll only need to create one innovation profile for each social enterprise, not one per product/service. This helps you put the best foot forward about your social enterprise to funders and other collaborators. 
  3. Take the Actions & Tips listed in the Application Instructions. Note: You can do this step after you submit your innovation for consideration until the Call closes on March 3, 2020.
