Partnering in Venture Philanthropy: matching all pieces of the puzzle

  September 23, 2020     15:30 -  16:15  

In order to create systemic change through entrepreneurship, it is crucial that we combine our strengths. NGOs, corporate foundations, corporates, impact investors and social entrepreneurs should work together to make a difference. All of them are a different piece of the puzzle, have different views and different needs: together we can create the full picture. But how does that work? And who should make it work?

During this interactive session, we bring forward a brand new collaboration, Mission Reuse, that aims to turn the tap on plastic waste in Europe by making reuse the new normal. Funded by Adessium Foundation, Stichting DOEN and Gieskes Strijbis Fonds, executed by venture builder Enviu and NGO’s Natuur & Milieu en Recycling Netwerk Benelux, in partnership with multiple corporates, among other packaging multinational Paardekooper.

Facilitated by Enviu’s CEO Michiel Elich, panelists Martijn Meijer (Adessium), Jelmer Vierstra (Natuur & Milieu) and Agnieska van Batavia (Paardekooper) will speak with the audience about the pitfalls and opportunities of collaboration for scalable impact, both in general and specifically on how to successfully join forces to realize the systemic ambition of Mission Reuse.
