ECONOMY THAT MOVES AND CREATES

ImpactSummit, as a subevent of the RuhrSummit, is by far the biggest Event for Social Entrepreneurs around that region. Many Startups and Entrepreneurs include their social impact directly in their business case or their strategy and go much further that only with CSR. For these Entrepreneurs their individual Social Impact is often the reason to even become motivated. Successful examples like Einhorn condoms, LemonAid or Kiron Open Higher Education have surely shown proof of concept.

Our event enables social Entrepreneurs to exchange with other Startups as well as Corporates and Investors to accelerate their individual network. Not only since new UN carta it’s more than obvious that young Entrepreneurs should become open minded for new business areas with social-innovative ideas… and exactly here starts impact of ImpactSummit!

Social Startups re-strengthen society and the make money out of it! At ImpactSummit we show how Social Entrepreneurship can become essential part of a successful business case and how relevant change processes can start rolling. Social-Ecological Thinking can in future become success critical factor for Startups around the globe.
