The impact of unresolved global challenges is growing. Neither markets, nor NGOs, nor governments alone can solve the challenges we all are facing. These challenges are captured in the 17 SDGs. UNCTAD estimates that 2500 billion dollar need to be invested to achieve these goals. You have read it right; nobody will solve this on their own.
The Hague’s ImpactCity is keen on changing the way the world tackles global challenges. In our city innovations are linked to SDGs, we develop innovations for a better world. UN city The Hague is also known as the international city of peace & justice.
We have integrated the SDGs with the expertise we have built up in the past 100 years. Through collaborations of UN institutions, government, NGOs, knowledge institutions, companies (big and small) and investors our ImpactCity is rich of. For more than a century our core business has been doing good. As challenges grow, opportunities do as well. Many partners ventured in technology and innovation, which potentially offer non-traditional solutions for non-traditional challenges. That is where doing business comes in. In this masterclass you will learn about different strategies, and which winning one might work for you as well.
