Impact Startup is a 6 + 6-month accelerator program for early-stage entrepreneurs addressing societal challenges. Impact Startup helps companies blend sustainable growth with increased societal impact. The program actively assists these companies in securing the right type of funding and establishing fruitful collaborations with the public sector to achieve their goals.
North Star supported the accelerator program in the fall of 2021, focusing on children and youth. The companies in this cohort centered their efforts on enhancing the quality of life and opportunities for children and young people.
