Webinar | Enablers of Impact: the Role of Incubators and Accelerators in Bridging Investment and Solutions

Enablers of impact 2020 webinar social media

EVPA recently launched the report: “Enablers of impact”, developed in collaboration with MAZE - decoding impact. This report analyses the role of incubators and accelerators in the impact ecosystem, identifying trends along specific characteristics. The launch of this report represents a great opportunity to engage with EBN, a leading network in the field of development and growth of innovative entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs.

On 13th May, EVPA, in partnership with EBN, hosted a free webinar to dive into the key insights of the “Enablers of impact” report, building on the main recommendations included in it. Thanks to the participation of two experienced impact funds, we explored their strategies and how they collaborate with incubators/accelerators to find new investment opportunities.
