Direct catalytic investments into ImpactAIM’s portfolio of impact-driven ventures. Support our ventures and invest in solving the most vital challenges of the world.
ImpactAim Accelerator, the key component of the global UNDP Impact Investment Vehicle concept, is an independent platform that aims to develop different, field-based acceleration programs to support early-stage and established start-ups that address identified gaps of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
ImpactAIM Accelerations help address the development challenges by applying non-traditional approaches and solutions. To do this, thematic Accelerators create new service lines in the development sector and act as a prototype, that is aimed to engage multiple stakeholders, including investors, the tech community, academia, the government, and donor organizations. With this goal in mind, ImpactAIM mapped out a theory of change, showing how a program identifies and selects high-potential, impact-oriented early-stage and mature ventures with tech-enabled solutions; mentors and builds networks and skills; ensures access to significant expertise, networks and investors injects impact into the DNA of business models; introduces business, finance and impact tracks and learning; analyses each venture’s business model; produces cohorts of ventures which are ready for follow-on investments.
These investments can help to support growth and job creation and may ultimately enable accelerated ventures to contribute to economic growth and to building the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
