Together with you and our partners at Samsung and the Social Entrepreneurship Netzwerk Deutschland (SEND), we want to help your idea to make a breakthrough. For this purpose we’ve tailored the Samsung for Impact accelerator programme especially to the needs of Zebra startups. We accompany you and your team on an individual growth project over six months and help you with know-how, resources, marketing, and connections to important stakeholders that get you closer to your goals.
We support start-ups that tackle pressing environmental and social challenges with tech-driven solutions. Climate change and environmental degradation are existential threats to our planet and therefore to all of us. This is why the European Commission has agreed a new growth strategy with the Green Deal – one of the most important political initiatives for the next ten years. For the transition to a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy to succeed, we need innovative thinking and new solutions to the challenges facing society. Samsung for Impact focuses on the following three areas of action:
- Sustainable industry: applying state-of-the-art technology to industrial production to create a sustainable, circular economy.
- Sustainable mobility: using intelligent solutions to improve all areas of the traffic and goods transport industry and to save emissions.
- Climate action: reducing greenhouse gases through innovative solutions and completely new technological approaches.
You have an idea but aren’t sure whether it fits into one of the three areas? You’re welcome to apply anyway – we’ll review all submissions.
