We want to celebrate the emerging companies within our network that are striving to make the UN Sustainable Development Goals achievable.


Our impact startup programme showcases the startups working to have a positive impact on their communities, industries and ecosystems.


We define Impact startups within our network based on four factors:

1. Pursuing one or more of the SDGs through their operations.

2. Adapting enterprise objectives to be more sustainable.

3. Solving industry problems that could have a far-reaching effect.

4. Prioritising social collaboration and idea-sharing over competition and profit.
