Showcasing High Impact Ventures

  September 22, 2020     15:30 -  16:15  

Eight innovative impact ventures will present their innovative solutions and explain how they responded to the challenges of COVID-19.

The goal of this session is to inspire and share innovations, but also to attract investments – funding, network contacts, additional resources – that will help scale the impact of these ventures and replicate their solutions across the world.

All impact ventures are members of the SIT Alumni Network, a network of more than 100 ventures supported by the EIB Institute, and participated in the Scaling Impact programme at CATÓLICA-LISBON.
