INNOVATE 46 2019
Leveraging Impact – How Forward-Thinking Organizations Create Growth and Profit Through Impact
On October 16, 2019, SACCNY showcased and brought together impact movers and shakers, scale-up entrepreneurs and ventures, forward-thinking larger corporations and investors to meet, share and discuss with organizations who are breaking ground and leveraging impact as the core of their business strategy.
Innovate46 2019 dived into the importance of creating impact through business – or – business through impact. No matter what order you choose to look at it, making a difference while making money – creating jobs and wealth, while creating a better world, is an unbeatable business model! Sweden is at the forefront of this movement and Innovate46 2019 explored how public and private sector actors on both sides of the Atlantic are making a positive societal and environmental impact – while creating profitable organizations.
