THE ACCELERATE2030 APPROACH

Sustainability starts with the human.

We work with leaders of high-impact ventures to develop, test and validate their journey to scale that is sustainable for the individual, the organisation and society as a whole.

Global reach in addressing local needs.

We build on the local expertise and networks of the Impact Hub network, UNDP and partners to identify and support ventures with high impact potential in emerging and developing markets.

Change does not happen in isolation.

We bring together ventures with the United Nations, corporates and investors to bring forward win-win collaborations for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

ACCELERATE2030 IMPACTS

As of 2018 the program’s ventures have impacted more than 601,000 end users with their innovative solutions for the SDGs.
