Lately we’ve seen more and more vc’s focussing on impact driven companies and startup incubators are sarting to show a similar move. Lets look at three of them:
EIT Community Booster
Launched by the European Commission, the New European Bauhaus
translates the European Green Deal into a tangible, positive experience in which all Europeans can participate and progress together. With this in mind, the EIT Community Booster is set to identify and support the startups and scaleups integrating the three core dimensions of the New European Bauhaus:
sustainability, from climate goals, to circularity, zero pollution, and biodiversity
aesthetics, quality of experience and style, beyond functionality
inclusion, from valorising diversity, to securing accessibility and affordability
Startup Bootcamp Sustainability
SBC new ‘branch’ has presented its first cohort including:
: a platform that rates the ESG performance of small and medium companies. Providing autonomous and personalised sustainability solutions and carbon footprint calculations.
For Purpose Job
: a platform that enables purpose-hungry people to find impact-driven jobs.
: an independent review platform that helps eco-conscious consumers on their journey to sustainable consumption.
Along with its 10th anniversary Rockstart has rebranded to double down on helping impact driven founders grow their businesses. “At the core we are the same, but we will move forward with a new statement. Why stop at rock the world, when you can change the world”, said Rockstart CEO & co-founder Rune Theill
Having started acting as a early growth investor - besides being an incubator - Rockstart this year invested in companies like EV charging platform Soolutions and zero-waste e-grocery startup Lyfa.
