UN sustainable development goals
We are committed
iAccelerate and our residents are committed to The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a bold universal agreement to end poverty and all its dimensions and craft an equal, just and secure world – for people, planet and prosperity. Throughout our Program entrepreneurs are encouraged to implement SDGs across their business.
Introduced in 2020, this is our first report on UN SDGs being addressed by our resident companies.
The best innovation are the ones that fit seamlessly into our lives and don’t cause much disruption, we learnt this a lot more with the iAccelerate program.
