Accelerate2030 at Building Bridges Week

This year, Accelerate2030 Scaling Week is happening alongside the Building Bridges Week in Geneva  – the main moment when the Geneva financial community comes together with the development community and businesses to channel more funding for action towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Building Bridges will feature a high-level Summit, over 65 community-led events, and a networking village.  Most importantly, it will showcase concrete commitments, initiatives and actions that make finance a key catalyst for change. 

Accelerat2030 events at Buildings Bridges

Building Bridges Summit – 3rd October, afternoon

The Summit is the marquee event that will kick off Building Bridges Week. It will include presentations and panel discussions with world-renowned speakers and out-of-the-box thought leaders that will address global challenges and articulate innovative solutions to advance sustainable finance.

Cardano Networking Soirée – 4th October, evening

Accelerate2030 and the Cardano Foundation will co-host an evening event that establishes Cardano as a leading blockchain technology when it comes to impact among the Geneva ecosystem by showcasing concrete example of its use by entrepreneurs, investors, and other stakeholders.

Main Event: “Accelerate2030 meets Geneva: Unlocking Financing for the Missing Middle” – 5th October, 16:00 – 17:30

The aim of the event is to highlight the voices of entrepreneurs from the Global South and engage them in conversation with the Geneva ecosystem, particularly investors driving financial solutions and leaders from the development sector who affect the framework conditions for funding to be channeled to the SDGs. 

During the event entrepreneurs will showcase their innovative and regenerative solutions for the SDGs, investors will present their innovative financial solutions (including those enabled by innovative technologies such as blockchain and cryptocurrency investment platforms), and we will engage in a joint conversation with a panel representing all the different sectors to discuss the financial gap preventing promising solutions from scaling. 

Speakers & panelists will include:

  • Christian Frutiger (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation)

  • Cardashift
  • Impact Investors
