Seed Alliance

The Seed Alliance is a collaboration established between the FIRE, FRIDA and ISIF Asia grants and awards programs.

The Seed Alliance was launched on 31 March 2012, thanks to a generous grant from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada and the contributions from three Regional Internet Registry partners (AFRINIC, APNIC and Lacnic). Later in the year, the Swedish Government joined the partnership, through a generous grant from the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida).

Under the alliance, every regional program receives support for the allocation of small grants and awards in their respective region, while undertaking a variety of collaborative efforts such as evaluation, capacity building and networking.

The Seed Alliance offers a space for all the program partners and sponsors, to identify and build communities of practice, scale up existing relevant initiatives, provide better visibility for their respective partners and projects, and promote networking and mentoring for supported organizations.

If you are interested to apply for grants or submit award nominations, you need to contact the regional program working on your region.

You can join the Seed Alliance as a contributing partner or sponsor global or regional activities, according to your interests. Please visit for additional information.
