Welcome the new batch of the +impact accelerator!
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.
