SOCIAL GOOD SUMMIT GENEVA 2016 - #SGSGeneva
Connecting Today. Creating Tomorrow. #2030NOW.
UNDP and Impact Hub Geneva hosted the inaugural Social Good Summit Geneva on October 6th. The event focused on the catalytic role entrepreneurship and innovation can play for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SGSGeneva was not a traditional "talkshop", it was solutions oriented. To make this happened, Impact Hub in collaboration with UNDP launched Accelerate2030, a program that identified 177 innovative ventures working on one or several SDGs in 10 different emerging markets and selected five entrepreneurs from Armenia, Colombia, Ghana, and Mali for them to present their solutions during the SGSGeneva.
The SGSGeneva was a networking event. An invite-only event, it brought together the different actors who are able to work towards the accelerated implementation of the SDGs - entrepreneurs, impact investors, innovators, representatives from the global supply chain, international organizations, bilateral cooperation and local enablers of entrepreneurship - connecting them and bridging their expertise.
