Impact Investors

Our program is a platform for investors and entrepreneurs to meet and collaborate to maximize environmental, social, and financial benefit. We work closely with action-oriented impact investors who are committed to invest in and support participating ventures. Currently, we manage the first impact investor group in Austria, dedicated to invest in the most promising ventures of our program and to build a long-lasting ecosystem.
In our unique process, investors and entrepreneurs meet on eye level and can learn more about impact investment in the program and at the CEE Impact Day.

Capacity Building

Our program is tailored to equip purpose-driven entrepreneurs with everything they need to know in order to attract the right capital for their business.
We pick entrepreneurs up where they are and guide them through an intense and mindset-shifting experience.
All participants go through a
highly customized program with individual support and coaching by experienced entrepreneurs, investors and content experts.
