Are you a startup impacting the world for good?

Then it's time to showcase your work!

 

"The impact Shakers" startup awards celebrate those who make it their mission to empower as many people as possible to contribute to, and share in the benefits of, sustainable economic growth.


We use the doughnut economic model as a framework for the awards, and focus on the 12 domains in the social foundation as 12 awards.


The finalist of each category will get to participate in an intensive bootcamp to help them 'Raise Alternative Funding for Their Impact Business'. More prizes will be announced soon!

Applications are open until May 1st.

Applications must be submitted before May 1st to be eligible to participate in the Awards.

During public voting, we turn to our extensive communities and ask them to cast their votes to get an indication on how they themselves perceive the finalists. Public voting is equivalent to one jury vote.
