Apart from the scaling program, ventures will join a week-long bootcamp in Geneva and participate in UNDP Social Good Summit in Geneva in October 2017, where they will pitch their solutions for the SDGs and connect with corporates, international organizations, entrepreneurs and impact investors.

The Jury:

  • Napoleon Navarro, Senior Policy Advisor at UNDP Cambodia
  • Sothy Khieng, Research Fellow at CDRI
  • Karen Moik, Investment Analyst at Insitor Management
  • Vincent Gradt, Independent Consultant and former Head of Impact & Thematic Investing at AXA Investment Managers

Accelerate2030 is a multi-stakeholder global cross-border scaling program launched
by Impact Hub Geneva with UNDP as its founding partner. For its second edition,
Cambodia has been selected as one of the 17 developing and transitioning countries
across 4 continents to encourage ventures contributing to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals to apply.
