Our passionate entrepreneurial team has already helped more than 4000 companies to become more sustainable and make more impact.

In our work we use an ecosystem approach, because complex issues our society is facing cannot be solved alone. They ask for collaboration. Our ecosystems are focussed on the food sector, circular economy, inclusive society and fashion sector. Through our ecosystems startups, SMEs and organisations can activate their first steps in sustainability, get matched with innovative solutions to make a positive impact with their business and accelerate their impact through capacity building programs.
