Amsterdam has a long history of entrepreneurs who care for both the city and its residents. Social entrepreneurship – doing business that focuses on creating added value for society – is an integral part of the city’s mindset. Discover more about the city's impact ecosystem and stay up to date on the latest developments.
Presented annually to researchers who’ve made meaningful contributions to society, the Amsterdam Impact Award recognises a lifetime of achievement. The 2019 awards will be presented to four winners on 26 November.
Amsterdam wants to become the number one city for impact entrepreneurship: a place where startups, SMEs and larger companies work side by side to simultaneously create economic and societal value. Meet the players of Amsterdam’s growing impact ecosystem, as well as impact pioneers from abroad, at three key events taking place in September 2019.
Entrepreneurial Solutions for a Sustainable City, an event on June 20 2019, during WeMakeThe.City, is an ideal opportunity to explore how Impact Hub Amsterdam and its partners, including the City of Amsterdam, make cities more sustainable and vibrant through entrepreneurial solutions in the circular economy, plastics, food and inclusion.
