Scaling Week 2022 edition

From the 30th September – 6th October 2022, Accelerate2030 and Impact Hub Geneva-Lausanne will host the Sixth Accelerate2030 Scaling Week in Switzerland.

This year, the theme is ‘Solutions driving the shift to the new, circular and regenerative economy for the SDGs’ – entrepreneurial solutions and funding for such solutions. Our goal is to facilitate catalytic conversations that could significantly scale entrepreneurial impact on the SDGs.

The week is happening alongside the Building Bridges Week – 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.
