THE CHALLENGE

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The 17 Goals include areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. Accelerate2030 is an acceleration program based in Geneva, Switzerland that help businesses who are focused on the SDG’s scale their ventures internationally. Because these businesses are focused on such BIG global challenges, they need support to accomplish their goals and to ensure the world becomes a better place for everyone.

THE SOLUTION

Progress Playbook teamed up with The Impact Hub NYC and Geneva to develop a technology ecosystem tour to support 10 international businesses in the Accelerate 2030 program who are focused on the sustainable development goals (SDG’s). The technology ecosystem tour was designed to help businesses during the United Nations General Assembly Week to learn how to leverage technology and best business practices to scale their social ventures locally and globally. We reached out to Amazon, Ebay, and Microsoft who partnered up with us to give participants walk throughs of their offices and to share their philosophies on scaling.
