Impact Deal - the new data-driven acceleration program for European enterprises


Impact deal 2022

EVPA Member Fondazione CRT, together with OGR Torino and Microsoft launched Impact Deal, the new data-driven acceleration program for European enterprises aimed to generate societal and environmental impact. The first call for impact enterprises will be open from 3 February to 10 April 2022.

The project, designed and developed in collaboration with TOP-IX, The Data Science for Social Good Center, Ashoka, Impact Hub and The Data Appeal Company, will be based in OGR Tech, the OGR Turin's hub for innovation and applied research.

The first phase of the project, lasting approximately two months, will deliver targeted training to provide specific Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and entrepreneurial skills. A subset of the participating enterprises will then go on to the second phase, which will last approximately three months and focus in particular on business acceleration through the development of actual projects and solutions enabled by data.

A group of companies, organisations, and public and private bodies brought together under the name Data Club will play a key role in the program, effectively making business acceleration possible for the selected impact enterprises, by offering their datasets in a collaborative perspective, with the goal of generating social and environmental impact. The founding core of the Data Club includes Banca Sella, Fondazione Snam, TIM and Città di Torino.

The second phase of the program will end with a Demo Day, during which accelerated enterprises will present their progress to an audience of potential investors with a particular interest in impact investing.
