Better together

We believe there is no “I” in team but there is “we” in awesome and when great minds come together everything gets better. This Spring‘s Issue not only validates the power of collaboration but also stands as a reminder that we are stronger, better together.

Despite the uncertainties around the world, we found opportunities that will drive the change; and here we are, sharing exciting new projects with you.

Also: when we are talking about climate change we are taking things very seriously, and we are committed to finding solutions for a climate neutral future. Together with key partners, we are now gearing up for a new accelerator program.

We are launching soon with over 400K EUR in grants for startups developing  solutions focused on climate neutrality across all city systems  – from mobility to waste, from energy to health.

This is just the beginning –

stay healthy, stay curious, stay tuned!

HIGHLIGHTS

Social Impact Award offers a brand new format – the International Social Impact Weekend from April 16-18. During this interactive online event you will have the chance to dive into the world of social entrepreneurship, exchange ideas with successful social entrepreneurs and develop and improve your own ideas for a better future! Join alone or with your team and connect with like-minded peers globally!

We have successfully finished prototyping our 1st Sustainable Fashion Accelerator – supporting entrepreneurs from Austria and the Netherlands to grow their brands and contribute to the transformation of an industry that currently harms people and the planet. This fantastic experience left us  dreaming of sustainable catwalk presentations across the Impact Hub Network and a flagship FABB Lab/Store in the heart of Vienna.

Together with the Austrian Red Cross and New Paradigm Ventures we have launched REDpreneur. Over the course of this year we will support the development of impactful ventures for providing health and social services in East and South East Europe and the South Caucasus.

AHOY WEBEEM! While we are doing heavy work in the machine room for the next-level prototype,  we drop anchor in: Hamburg. We are excited to open another Chapter of WEBEEM and present you 5 Impact Pioneers from Hamburg.
