WineDown

At WineDowns we bring together key stakeholders around specific topics to better understand the social and environmental challenges our world faces, to discuss the action plan to achieve SDGs, and emphasise the important role of startups in this process.

It is a space to network with a broader ecosystem, meet various startups working on the respective topics, get to know the impact community over a glass of wine and share ideas to take collaborative actions.
