We are guided by a primary research question: How are social innovations transferred to other organizations to increase their impact? Drawing on field observations, interviews, and archival data from an ongoing social innovation transfer attempt in rural India, we show that the scaling process is fraught with challenges, but can nevertheless be managed by focusing on the “arrow core” of elements which enable a social innovation’s success.
