Calling all circular start-ups. Applications for batch 4 are now open!
Should the global population reach 9.6 billion by 2050, the equivalent of almost three planets could be required to provide the natural resources needed to sustain current lifestyles.
For this very reason, we decided to design a program that will support Nordic start ups adressing the most pressing issues that can be solved by circular business models.
About the program
Our mission is to support impact startups, and bridge the development gap by scaling their solutions. We are on a constant look out for entrepreneurs to join us on the journey for impact at scale!
+impact accelerator is divided into 3 phases of acceleration
For the boot camp we select up to 40 Nordic, circular economy start ups for an intensive weekend program during which we will work with participants to assess their needs and the potential to address them through working with accelerator’s partners and stakeholders. Based on the outcomes of those workshops we will select 10 start ups that will undergo the accelerator’s process.
This phase is the most intense part of the program, reqiring at least one co-founder to relocate to Stockholm to the “+ impact accelerator startup house” ( costs covered by Danske Bank) , for the month of June. During this period you will work on defining the most pressing problems of your business model together with our mentors and partners.
This phase requires you to attend some physical and some virtual workshops, while +impact accelerator experts help you facilitate finding solution to problems defined in phase 1
