2030 is approaching! And it has become clear by now that the path to reach the Sustainable Development Goals calls for innovation. As the tradition goes, philanthropy driven individuals and institutions spare no expense in the way of Social Entrepreneurship. However, in the world of accelerators and incubators, it has become essential to shift the funding paradigm towards an Impact Investing centered approach around which revolves, among others, the European Social Impact and Innovation Fund (ESIIF). How? You might ask. The first answer is revealed to us by the last SDG “Partnerships for the goals” and the slogan of Catalyst 2030 “Collaborating to achieve SDGs”. Everything around us is a system, from the largest constellation to the tiniest cell, everything is intertwined creating the breathtaking network of nature. Rethinking a funding strategies to build collaborations is the first step towards a successful holistic program implementing the three pillars of sustainable development: the economy, the environment, and the society. Once collaboration is achieved, we should now make sure it lasts by measuring success based on a long-term plan integrated in their KPI’s. Based on the above, this conference will present to you the do’s and don’ts for your funding to make an impact.
