At SoPact we believe that solutions to the grand challenges of the world can be found within the entrepreneurial scene. Weather dealing with health, demographic change, wellbeing, inclusiveness, sustainability, energy and climate etc., a bottom-up approach to innovate and grow new ideas is crucial.

SoPact is an accelerator for entrepreneurs and organisations working to solve social, cultural or environmental needs rather than solely to obtain economic gain. We believe that common business principles are effective in bringing about long-term positive impact and at the same time creating a financially sustainable venture.
