SFI Partnership Opportunity Process

SFI Partnerships start with a simple application for assistance in developing a local underserved community clean energy business opportunity.

Following a credential review that determines if the community qualifies as needs-based and the applicants qualify as professionals within their community with a genuine desire to join SFI in creating global change, we begin the SFI partnership program.

  1. Assist in the development of a formal business and financial plan.

  2. Provide access to our Educational Partners who will put together a formal business and industry educational plan that allows them to both get started with their project and commit to the education process that will help them build valuable skills towards their long-term success.

  3. Identify the local market needs – best target product/service solutions that meet their interests and provide valuable solutions within their community.

  4. Identify all product/service partners and negotiate/implement supplier contracts/agreements.

  5. Identify and apply for financial resources to implement the partnership business plan. I.E., grants, donations, financial services, local and federal incentives, and SFI direct investments/donations.

  6. Once funded, SFI will provide long-term mentoring and direct involvement to the level requested by our new partners to ensure their long-term growth and success.

From application to 1st day of operation takes between 90 and 120 days. During this process, significant work is going on to secure the resources and create the roadmap to success for each Partnership opportunity. Once an applicant’s partnership is accepted, they are provided all services and support through this process free of charge. Education, mentoring, and event participation opportunities are provided free of charge throughout the partnership.
