Experience

Danske Bank and Katapult partnered up to contribute to UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Their mission is to support impact startups and bridge the development gap by scaling their solutions. This year is the first edition, a 10 weeks intensive program, and +impact Accelerator is looking for entrepreneurs to join them on the journey for impact at scale!

How much do they invest?

They do not invest financial capital in participating companies in. They provide accommodation and co-working space, connect to relevant network and excellent mentors.

How do they work?

+impact Accelerator is a 10 weeks program based in Copenhagen, during which the participants will go through 6 modules training them in the fundamentals of business from a commercial perspective and not compromising on their impact.

This makes a difference to them

  • They are looking for early-stage startups. Pre-seed or during first seed capital stages.
  • Your solution needs to be addressing a social or environmental issue. Preferably corresponding to one (or more) of the SDGs.
  • Your company has at least two co-founders.
  • Your company is located in at least one of the following countries: Denmark, Finland, Norway, or Sweden.
  • Your business model has the potential to scale (preferably structured around tech)
  • Joining +impact Accelerator is a commitment so they will need you to show up for weekly check-ins, lectures and mentor sessions.
