What is an impact entrepreneurship ecosystem?
To create more social value and address Amsterdam’s societal challenges, impact enterprises need a diverse, strongly connected ecosystem. An ecosystem in which all actors make a contribution and work together to achieve positive impact. So how does it work?
Incubators, accelerators and network organisations give these entrepreneurs access to business development programmes and supportive communities.
Companies, organisations and consumers buy social, which means buying products and services from impact enterprises.
Financiers, such as investors, banks and VCs, access to capital so impact entrepreneurs can start and grow their businesses.
