Welcome to Accelerate2030

Accelerate2030 is a program co-initiated by Impact Hub Geneva and the UNDP, with a mission to scale internationally the impact of entrepreneurs working towards achieving positive social and environmental change contributing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We believe that a paradigm shift towards sustainable business practices is underway, and while providing support in conventional areas of business, we also enable entrepreneurs to integrate sustainable corporate culture through our leadership coaching. We believe that the future of business relies on sustainable business practices, and the unique positioning of the program in Geneva, Switzerland can leverage the potential and networks of many organisations to advance this global movement.
