We believe that the world’s greatest challenges will never be solved by one person or organisation alone. We need to work together. That’s why we set out to create thriving innovation ecosystems where we inspire and connect people, enabling collaboration across organisations, cultures and generations to solve current challenges.
Our ecosystem model is a carefully crafted set of activities focused on enabling collaboration and supporting innovation partnerships. Building on years of experience, we developed activities proven to engage different actors who share a common theme. Together, they partner as a community to increase environmental and social impact.
Each ecosystem circles around one main theme, which is the purpose, challenge and driver of it. And all of them follow the same principles.
Our impact ecosystems are communities of individuals engaged on a topic that they deeply care about. Ecosystems are places of openness, curiosity, and respectful conversation at every level. We create space where connections are made, relationships can grow, and fruitful partnerships can bloom.
Entrepreneurship can take many forms: from founding startups
and initiatives, or creating new political programmes, to implementing corporate intrapreneurship. We believe another economy is possible, which is why we set out to support those who have the courage to lead the way.
To create game-changing, sustainable innovations in a complex world, we need to consider perspectives from all stakeholders, listen deeply, and share expertise. By bringing together actors from business, government institutions, NGOs, and the startup world, we create an environment where hidden potential is uncovered, unexpected relationships are initiated, and collaboration becomes the key lever for successful innovation.
We facilitate various activities to help all stakeholders collaborate better and grow game-changing innovations that contribute to solving some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
Our ongoing community management ensures seamless exchange and networking, based on the members’ needs.
To identify main trends and opportunities in each ecosystem, we conduct qualitative research which results in a Trend Report.
We run monthly ecosystem events where the growing community comes together to exchange, discuss and network. In addition, we coordinate an annual Flagship summit, where members showcase their achievements and discuss with global thought leaders.
We design and implement tailored venture support programmes, providing expert knowledge, mentoring and access to investors, potential partners and the community.
With our investor and partnership matching formats we bring together ventures and potential partners to kickstart partnerships and pilot projects.
