Yunus Social Business has partnered with MAN Truck & Bus (a member of the Volkswagen group) to launch the MAN Impact Accelerator. The programme brings social entrepreneurs from Europe, Brazil, South Africa (and PAN Africa) together to tackle social and environmental challenges through innovative solutions in the transport and logistics space.

During the 6-month programme, startups will get to travel across the globe to visit mobility hotspots in Munich, Lisbon, Johannesburg and Sao Paolo . The entrepreneurs will get access to MAN infrastructure and assets and receive support from more than 300 mentors from companies like Salesforce, Amazon, Uber and Facebook. Among them are MAN CEO Joachim Drees and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus who has built social businesses impacting over 27 million people.

Startups do not have to pay for the programme, travel or accommodation.

Applications are open until 1 October.
