Last year, Accelerate2030 was successfully prototyped in 10 countries, receiving 177 applications while spreading awareness on the role of the #futureofbusiness in the 2030 Agenda. Together with partners Accelerate2030 has provided customized coaching and mentoring support to the international finalists and, amongst other achievements, facilitated an investment in the range 300K - 1 Mill CHF. This year Accelerate2030 is expanding the reach of the programme to 17 countries.
