Sustainable innovations and impact investments are crucial for building back better from the COVID-19 crisis and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Join us on Tuesday 30 November at 8:00-9:30 AM CET to connect with the Accelerate2030 program’s most innovative entrepreneurs at our flagship event “Driving finance to scale entrepreneurial solutions for the SDGs” to be held at Building Bridges 2021.*

**Event might also be found under title: “Global Innovation for the SDGs: Accelerate2030 Meets Geneva”

 

From coral reef-safe sunscreen made from agricultural waste to simplified investment solutions for clean energy, the Accelerate2030 ventures create solutions for our world’s most pressing challenges, drive the circular economy transition and change the future of business around the globe!

Launched out of Geneva in 2016, jointly by Impact Hub and UNDP Geneva, Accelerate2030 has become the world’s largest program for scaling entrepreneurial solutions towards the SDGs. Implemented across 33 countries in Africa, Asia, Latam, Eastern Europe, the program has supported 400+ entrepreneurs over the past 5 years.

In this fourth edition of the program, we received over 1400 applications from 20 countries, and selected 15 of the most promising SDG-focused entrepreneurs!
