Berlin: The Ecosystem

Recognising that fragility can come from conflicts like in Afghanistan or economic and political turmoil like for example in Venezuela, we have taken a broad approach to select places. Berlin, Germany, as a formerly war-torn and then divided city, is a place, which has overcome a severe state of fragility itself and was a perfect location to develop impACT further. impACT Berlin sharpened the focus on social entrepreneurship and collaborative innovation and tested new ways of cooperation between entrepreneurs and larger institutions.

Kabul: The Launch

impACT aims at featuring a positive image of fragile states such as Afghanistan. This will help to attract foreign investors providing them with first hand information on the business market in fragile contexts. Additionally, it supports startups and social entrepreneurs in providing sustainable and homegrown solutions to cross-border issues. impACT Berlin took place from 22. – 24. November 2017 building onto the success of the impACT Kabul conference that took place in August 2017. impACT paves the way for concrete and sustainable actions, which have a lasting impact beyond the international conference!
