VENUE: Impact Hub Stockholm
ADDRESS: Riddargatan 17D, 114 57 Stockholm, Sweden
Thursday the 26th of November Stockholm+Acumen together with Impact HUB Stockholm invites you to an inspirational evening on the topic of Integration and Entrepreneurship. The goal is to bring together social entrepreneurs, social innovators and supporters to discuss problems and solutions in the area of integration and entrepreneurship.
The Acumen Social Impact Investment fund and the +Acumen international chapters are working with new approaches to alleviate poverty around the world. Helping to scale already functioning social entrepreneurship endeavors is the main method, with a high rate of success. The organization and its “Ecosystem” consists of investments, mentorship programs, a global support network and skill-developing courses, now also available online, for anyone, for free.
The night will also serve as the first time Impact Hub Stockholm will participate in a MASHUP event with Impact Hub Global. MASHUP aims to strengthen ties with the ever-expanding Impact Hub Network by coming together the last Thursday of every month in multiple locations worldwide to share selected impact-driven ideas. The night will include communication with Impact Hubs on a variety of platforms.
